Years of international exhibitions
An extremely exciting period for the practice which continued to expand.
In 1993 in competition with 20 other practices Goodall Design was awarded the project to build the London Offices for Dar al Handasah, a multinational company, in Cairo.
Due to the success of this project, Dar al Handasah recommended Goodall Design for various projects throughout the Middle East all of which were successfully completed.
‘The Gift of the Earth’ in Abu Dhabi and ‘The Museum of the Two Holy Places’ in Medina to name two.
Goodall Design won the competition and awarded the project which was the talk of the show and won many awards.
In 1994, we were asked by Roundel, an agency linked with ICI, to join them in competing for a large travelling exhibition for the Saudi Government to tour Saudi and Europe. We were selected as one of three from a list of twenty to compete and put forward proposals. Saudi-Parsons were their agent and we presented to the Saudi Royal family in Yanbu. Our proposals were chosen but I was offered the project without my partners in the project and had to decline.
In 1995 we competed for the design of Indigo’s stand at DRUPA, the world’s largest international printing show, and were successful.
The exhibit won the Gold Award for ‘Best Exhibit in the World in 1995’ and later went onto San Francisco and Chicago.
In 1996 Our Agent in Abu Dhabi approach us to design the interior of his new offices which was successfully completed in conjunction with Taylor Woodrow.
In 1999 the company downsized to concentrate on design work.
