Masdar City is an Arcology project in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Through the joint effort of research scientists, architects and engineers, the 1, 500-acre development, master-planned by British architect Norman Foster of Foster and Partners, is designed to be a carbon neutral and waste-free city, with no fossil-fueled cars on the streets.

Now, in a recruitment video created with a drone by a student of the local research university the Masdar Institute, you can take an aerial tour of this city-of-the-future and admire its sweeping vistas and endless dessert views. Titled The Arcology, the film explores, “…a vision of architectural design principles for very densely populated habitats, ” as embodied in the small, but hyper-developed city of Masdar.
