Foster + Partners Inaugurate Solar-Powered Masdar Institute!
Noman Foster, principle of Fosters and Partners summed up the challenges the Institute has risen to: “Many have dreamed of a utopian project that would be solar-powered. Today’s official opening of the initial stage of the Masdar Institute campus at Masdar City is a first realization of that quest. Its student community is already active, living and working in their quarters. This community, independent of any power grid, develops a surplus of 60 percent of its own energy needs, processes its waste water on-site which is recycled and pioneers many energy-saving concepts. It is a bold experiment which will change and evolve over time – already it houses twelve separate research projects with potential world-wide applications.”
