Introduction to Masdar City

Masdar City, set out as an arcology project, a vision of architectural design principles and ecology, that appears as science fiction due to it’s main structure which minimizes individual human environmental impact.

Built in Abu Dhabi, in the UAE, this project was funded by the government of Abu Dhabi and designed by the British architectural firm Foster and Partners. The city will also host the headquarters of the International Renewable Energy Agency, and is designed to be the center of clean technology companies.

Masdar city is structured uniquely, and designed to be friendly to pedestrians and cyclists. Although it looks like a cube from a distance, its closely aligned patterned design buildings allow for airflow in the city which cools in down by 15 to 20 degree Celsius. The city itself relies on solar energy and other renewable resources.

The initial design of the city banned automobiles, and their solutions for mobility include a public mass transit and a personal rapid transit system, with existing road and railways leading to the city’s perimeter.

The majority of private vehicles will be restricted to parking along the city’s
