The Masdar Initiative (by Gaspar 1ºNI)

Masdar is a new city which has been projected by Norman Foster + Partners. The city will be in Abu Dhabi and will be a centre for the development of new ideas for energy production.

The enviromental ambitions of the Masdar Iniciative-Zero carbon and waste free-are a world first. They have provided us with a challenging desing 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.” Norman Foster.

The Masdar initiative is a project of Foster + Partners, this initiative has been driven by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company. The development of the Masdar Initiative will be a walled city constructed in 6 million square meter, the city will achieve zero carbon and zero waste and will be a centre for the development of investigation for energy production.The city will have a large photovoltaic power plant and several wind farms, it will be car free because this city is thought for pedestrians, a compact network of streets encourages walking and is complemented by a personalised transports system.

I hope this city becomes a reality soon and everybody can live in places like this. Sooner or later the world will change and everybody will live in cities without pollution and with clean energies.
