Abu Dhabi is fast turning into a city full of architectural marvels to baffle your mind. From some of the largest to the tallest buildings in the world to futuristic buildings of uncanny proportions and perplex designs, Abu Dhabi has it all. The below are only a few of the top architectural designs and buildings with historic value found.
The great white domes and spires of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the 8th largest mosque in the world accommodating more than 40,000 worshipers at full capacity. The main concept of the building was to ‘Unite the world’ and is reflected by the use of material from as far as India, New Zealand, China, Morocco and UAE and can be visited even by non worshipers daily. Known as the White fort, the Qasr al-Hosn is a building with historical significance and a welcoming difference from the futuristic buildings surrounding it. Built in 1760 as a mode to protect its only water source, the building is popular among tourists.
The staggeringly luxurious hotel with its exclusive 7 star rating, 850,000 square meters of interior surrounded by 200 acres of stunning gardens and its own private beach is the Emirates Palace. Costing £4 billion to build making it the second most expensive in the world and setting a bill of up to £7,000 a night, shows the luxuriousness of this hotel. Another luxury hotel though not rivaling the Emirates Palace is the Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi at the Capital Gate, the leaning tower of Abu Dhabi. The building has been specifically designed to lean at an angle of 18 degrees at a height of 160 meters and offers stunning views of the city, especially from its 19th floor spa. Looking like a giant glass disk in the Abu Dhabi skyline is the iconic Aldar HQ, the first ever circular skyscraper in the world and a true award winning engineering and architectural feat. While these may be named at the top five buildings, the Yas Hotel, Ferrari World, Sheikh Zayad Bridge, Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and Sun and Sky Towers at Reem Island are a few other architectural marvels found in the city.
