Winner of the 2014 CID Lifetime Achievement Award, Khuan Chew designed some of the region’s most prestigious projects. Chew, as well as her firm KCA International, are legendary among the industry. Chew rose to prominence after working with UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on projects that defined the city skyline, such as Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the Madinat Jumeirah and the Burj Al Arab. With its opulence, luxury and interior that transport the viewer to a different world, Burj Al Alrab is certainly one of Chew’s most revered projects. She has since gone on to create designs in locations around the world.
