Masdar City Tour, In Depth (CleanTechnica Exclusive Videos)

February 15th, 2014 by  

I think the piece I wrote up last year on Masdar City* is still completely relevant. So, for an overview of the city from this city planner (by training) and cleantech expert (by career), have a look at that article. This year, I was intent on getting a lot more video coverage of the city. A couple of large new buildings have also opened up since then, including the Siemens Middle East headquarters (which I already wrote about and shared videos about twice). In the two videos below (each ~15 minutes), you can get a nice, fairly thorough, inside look at Masdar City (including a little bit about these new buildings) — all from the comfort of your own couch. 😀

There’s a lot of super interesting stuff in these videos, but they are especially geared toward architect and city planning lovers. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions you want passed on to Chris Chi Lon Wan, Masdar City Design Manager (the British guy in the videos), or Steve Severance, Head of Program Management and Investments at Masdar City (the American guy).

*Full disclosure: Masdar covered my trip to Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, which is where I filmed the above videos.
