Foster + Partners' Reveal Plans for Wing-Shaped Abu Dhabi Museum 

Foster + Partners' recently revealed new designs for an awe-inspiring wing-shaped museum in Abu Dhabi. Called the Zayed National Museum, the center will be dedicated to showcasing the history and culture of the country and will feature five feather-like solar towers that are as architecturally striking as they are energy-saving.

The five wing-shaped towers protrude from a man-made, landscaped mound that houses the galleries. The towers act as thermal chimneys and draw cooling currents through the museum without any need for electricity. Fresh air is captured and drawn through underground ground-cooling pipes and then released into the museum’s air. Since the towers heat up at the top, air is pulled up vertically through the galleries due to the thermal stack effect, and is then drawn out of the air vents.

'Flexible' Office Features Descending Desks for a Multi-Use Space

On a weekday morning, the ground floor of the Droste silo is empty.  At nine o' clock the big tables with computers slowly descends. A fresh new day begins! At the end of the day the workstations disappear back into the ceiling. The space is ready for another purpose: a lecture, a dinner, a party, a promotion of a new product, an exhibition or an evening Yoga class.

The design is achieved by multidisciplinary design team, Zecc Architecten, Heldergroen communication, and Vrolijk design & construction. The team collaborated on a design process where there was room for the different disciplines; innovation, discussion and change. Because of this collaboration a strong identity and high level of quality has been realized.
