Alserkal Avenue is a massive Dubai art hub housed in a complex of 91 warehouses that were once the site of a marble factory. This center of creativity is home to galleries and workshops where artists are given the tools they need to create as well as perks like an artisan cafe, a vinyl record shop and a sneaker store. Vilma Jurkute, the director of Alserkal Avenue, gives architects and photographers Anna Devis and Daniel Rueda a tour of this carefully curated community founded by businessman and patron of the arts Abdelmonem Bin Eisa Alserkal.
