MAS­DAR, A FLAG­SHIP CITY OF THE FU­TURE

The Pullman Magazine - - Connectivity -

Built to­tally from scratch in the mid­dle of the desert, the city of Mas­dar near

Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emi­rates) is a real-life lab­o­ra­tory for the city of the fu­ture. Cre­ated by the Mas­dar In­sti­tute

(an out­stand­ing re­search in­sti­tute in the dig­i­tal city sphere) in con­junc­tion with the MIT, the project was launched in 2008 and should be fi­nal­ized this year. De­signed to ac­com­mo­date 40,000 peo­ple, this "zero-car­bon" city pro­duces no non-re­cy­clable waste and even has its sights set on pro­duc­ing re­new­able en­ergy.
