Our countdown is a journey, a giant sundial, a piece that evolves, as you walk around it, as you interact with its giant sails surrounding a technological sphere. Inspired by nature, Al-Rihla is a self-powered flower with 12 petals, one for each hour of the clock and reminiscent of the Dhows in the harbour, woven in the tradition of the Al Sadu cloth, it will weave people around the globe, around football, around the world cup. Al-rihla will be a beacon of unity and joy, bringing us to an event that the whole world will be looking forward to.
