The World Trade Center Abu Dhabi, featuring the city’s tallest building, the Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid, is located in the heart of Abu Dhabi at the site of the old Central Market, a traditional crossroads and meeting point in the city. In addition to the residential Burj, hotels and offices, the 700,000-square-meter mixed-use development also includes a traditional souk (market), up to seven levels of retail in the podium, a green roof above the market, and a bridge system linking these areas together. A number of design elements have been integrated into the project in order to increase its energy efficiency, including solar collectors and a ventilated three-skin façade. Additionally, local building materials were used wherever possible during construction to reduce the economic and environmental costs of transporting imported materials. Join this program to learn how this historic market center has transformed into a 21st -Century “polycenter” in the Emirati capital.
