Future Cities: 10 Unique Projects. Part 3

New Media on The Internet
Today I’d like to tell you about the Arabian projects. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the cities of contrasts, where the wealth and luxury verge on poverty and survival, beauty contradicts plainness, green oases are found side by side with torrid desert. However, Arab countries always impress us with the architectural concepts. Let’s look at their projects of the Future Cities.

CITY WITHOUT CARBON EMISSIONS
Masdar in the United Arab Emirates is the city without cars and skyscrapers. Today Masdar is already being built from scratch in the center of the desert near Abu Dhabi.
Its main feature is independence from traditional power sources. Masdar will receive energy from the sun, wind and geothermal sources. Thus, Masdar will become the first city with zero carbon emissions.
In this Future City high emphasis will be paid to high-speed public transport. Giant «sunflowers» will cover streets from the day heat, and the energy saved up by them will be used only at night.


GREEN CITY IN THE DESERT
Dubai is one more city in the United Arab Emirates, which will be able to satisfy the requirements of the Future City completely. Specialists of the Baharash Architecture Company created the project, in which they used the main world achievements in the eco-construction.
Their project includes 550 comfortable villas, educational institutions and organic farms. Energy for all of these will be produced by 200 square kilometers of solar panels. The major principles for the “green” city will be the principles of ecology and simplicity of social interaction.

The three last projects will be described in the following post.
