The foundation-laying ceremony for Dolmen Mall took place in Lahore, Pakistan, on Friday 13 September. Directors Chris Lanksbury and Xavier Grau, with Architect Pierre Cnops, attended the ceremony and outlined the design concept for this new retail and leisure destination to the assembled 450 guests.

A 75,000m2 GLA luxury shopping centre located within the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) grounds in Lahore, Dolmen Mall will offer three levels of shopping, a food court on the upper floor, a hypermarket on the ground floor and two levels of basement parking for 2,000 cars. The design uses traditional Islamic patterns on perforated contemporary surfaces, employing geometrical shapes to stunning effect.
