The winning design by the international practice Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) for the city centre for Masdar in the UAE – will be amazingly, the world’s first “zero carbon”, “zero waste” city powered entirely by renewable energy sources!
Masdar is a planned city located 17 kilometres from Abu Dhabi. a government initiative, and the city is being constructed over seven phases due to be completed by 2016, not that far ahead aye… I would love to visit!
So, yes, this city center will ofcourse include a Plaza, a Five-Star hotel, a long stay hotel, a Convention Centre and an Entertainment Complex as well as retail facilities! Ok, now I am really convinced to visit maybe by 2017…
