As you may know, I am in the United Arab Emirates to teach workshops in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. This is the first of a series of photo diaries I will be posting to share this lovely experience with you.
UAE Photo Diary #1: Masdar City
My friend is a green and renewable energy consultant and he works on projects at Masdar City- a super sustainable area in Abu Dhabi. He took me on a great tour and explained how these buildings create shade and reflect sun to stay cool as well as harness sun for energy using traditional methods as well as breakthrough technology. The cars and car parks are under the city, where travel is by personal automated transport. There is also an organic grocery shop and cafe. I absolutely recommend a visit here. It’s the perfect spot for Kiki Community folks!
