Foster + Partners has declared that the walled city of Masdar in Abu Dhabi will be the world’s first zero-carbon and zero-waste city. The development is six square kilometres, car free, and will include a new HQ for the Masdar company as well as a new university. Says Sir Norman Foster on the project: ‘The environmental ambitions of the Masdar Initiative – zero carbon and waste free – are a world first. They have provided us with a challenging design brief that promises to question conventional urban wisdom at a fundamental level. Masdar promises to set new benchmarks for the sustainable city of the future. The surrounding land will contain wind and photovoltaic farms, research fields, and plantations, so that the city will be entirely self-sustaining.
