Masdar Institute 1 B
The MASDAR development is the physical component of the MASDAR initiative, spreading over approximately 6 square kilometres of land that was granted by the Government of Abu Dhabi.
The Masdar Institute 1B project involved the construction of the campus to house the Institute’s graduate program. The program is run in conjunction with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in the US and hopes to be the cornerstone forum for research, business and creativity in renewable technology.
Designed by Foster & Partners, the campus includes three residential buildings with 222 1-bedroom apartments; four additional lab buildings and an iconic multi-level, multi-use sports hall/auditorium with a pool and gym facilities.
