The majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is probably the most imposing religious and national landmark in Abu Dhabi to date. It is also arguably one of the most important architectural treasures of contemporary UAE society - and one of the most beautiful in the world - initiated by the late president and father of the UAE, HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Masdar City aims to be of the world’s most sustainable urban developments powered by renewal energy.
Yas Island is one of the most spectacular projects under construction in the UAE. Located strategically off the city of Abu Dhabi, the entertainment destination of Yas Island will eventually occupy a total land area of 25 square km.
More than just the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa is an unprecedented example of international cooperation, symbolic beacon of progress, and an emblem of the view, dynamic and prosperous Middle East.
