Foster + Partners have completed the Incubator Building located in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi.
Clad in colourful ceramic plates, the Incubator Building meets the city’s energy requirements as it incorporates energy and water saving technologies.
The building is centered around a lobby that is planted with drought-resistant plants, while recycled structural and aluminium sheets border the interior facade of the walls.
Narrow passageways and low-rise buildings create a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere in a comfortable temperature that applies natural ventilation.
GE is the first company to set up its office in the building, with 100 small and medium sized start ups ready to move in this year.
