etienne malapert – The City of Possibilities
by etienne malapert
In 2008, the United Arab Emirate decided to undertake the construction of an autonomous city "zero carbon and zero waste", located 30km east of the capital Abu Dhabi. The Masdar project is a perfect example of land linking architecture and environmental technology in anticipation of what might be called "post-oil". My approach is to show the other side of this construction that is constantly changing. The walking trip allowed me to make a statement on the human, architecture and landscape of this city.
