On Al Yas Island, the biggest natural island of the United Arab Emirates, the Ferrari World Theme Park is currently under construction as an amusement and leisure facility.
According to the design concept of Benoy, it will include a Formula 1 fitted circuit, a shopping mall of the size of 300,000 m², condominiums, marinas and also several luxury hotels and two golf courses.
The park is built in two phases – phase 1 will presumably be completed in 2009, whereas the second phase shall not be implemented until 2014.
The Ferrari World Theme Park is covered by a vast roof. The entire roof structure with a surface of about 195,000 m² consists of a MERO spatial framework.
With a total number of about 170,000 members and 42,200 joints, it is the largest spatial framework ever built.
