It might be a vanity project, but at least its one that pioneers interesting technologies and at least attempts to create urban structures which are adapted to the UAE climate, unlike the rest of the Arab world. Maybe they fail but it looks like they are getting at least close to that. In Dubai they haven't even tried yet and merely continue to put one skyscraper glass house one after the other into the sand.

Totally agree. Abu Dhabi makes me envious for getting something like Masdar City.

Dubai could have made me envious with Hydropolis, but well...

The most interesting is the new idea of transportation - pavements on the ground and automated taxis underground. At what stage is the construction of this city?

The city of the future looks incredible. I hope every city can take on elements of this project. This proves that buildings with zero or even a negative carbon footprint are possible! Great pics, Parisian Girl!

Lovely project. I hope there are still updates today? I would be interested in following the development of masdar after I saw it in a documentary on youtube.

Hi there, from what I have read this Masdar City has a lot of potential.

I live on AD Island. If I was to visit Masdar City, where can I visit? Are there areas open to the general public or is it private access only?

How do people access these electric personal transit pods we see on TV adverts?
My family visited Masdar but they didn't see them. Why are they hidden away?
All they saw was a mini mall and lots of students.

It has been 2 years since the last update. Is this thread actually still alive?

I have been to Sumo Sushi and Bento at Masdar Institute and their Chicken Bento is the most delicious bento I have ever tasted.

That certainly is good news, but did you also take some pictures of the construction works?
