Masdar City: The Worlds Greenest City


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.
