masdar city part 2

last saturday i went to masdar, and i was really surprised for the things that they have. i love it , genius! they provide prt (personal rapid transit) to go to main building , personal rapid transit is a transportation system without a driver and no harmful emissions. and they have wind tower ( the cooling system used in traditional emirati houses that captures upper level winds to cool the open air public square )

anyway, ill continue about my trip to masdar city later, now i have to go to work ! ciaoo ~
