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.
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.
