The NEW eco friendly city!

After watching The Human Planet this week I found myself being completely taken back by Norman Fosters new venture.

Norman Foster and Partners are creating the world’s first zero-carbon and zero-waste city in Abu Dhabi. The new 6 million square metre sustainable development Masdar was driven by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company.  The city will contain their new headquarters along with a new university devoted to new ideas for energy production.

To remain zero-carbon, the city will be entirely car free. Carefully planned public transportation will ensure that none of the city’s inhabitants will have to walk more than 200 metres before meeting some part of the transportation link.

We’ve all seen sustainable structures from Foster before, but this takes Foster’s green initiatives to a whole new level!
