How so? Because its not in Dubai? Because its not based on glass towers that are badly adapted to the local climate? Or is it because it is planned to get companies working on leading technologies of the future to that piece of desert?

I like that first complex very much, at least from what can be seen. I hope it also works as well as it looks like. Maybe the Emirates are finally creating an example of intelligent architecture adapted to the local needs rather than a rather dumb but megalomanic approach that totally fails to address the challenges of coastal desert climate.

I found a picture from afar:

Trailblazers on Masdar's frontier

April Yee | Apr 15, 2012


One of Masdar City's major buildings, the Siemens headquarters, is under construction at the Masdar City near Abu Dhabi. Silvia Razgova / The National. Jourdan Younis, Managing Director in Masdar City. Fatima AL Marzooqi / The National

A trailer on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi is named SAF-1, short for "sustainable administrative facility". Its amenities include air conditioning, a parking lot and proximity to a Caribou Coffee, the only one in this stretch of desert near Abu Dhabi International Airport.
