The Glasshouse

 
The latest centerpiece to appear on the Corniche is this giant glasshouse. No idea who owns it or what its purpose is but interesting all the same. If there are any Abu Dhabians out there who can shed some light on the property, please educate the rest of us by leaving a comment.

It's been built by Aldar and the shape of it is supposed to look like the design of an F1 car wing. I think maybe it will be called "The Wing" or something? I think it will be a kind of conferencing facility with meeting rooms and a coffee shop etc.... Funky though eh?

Well just imagine how would the building look like if the glass would be in silver gray color. it would look more beautiful i think. Isnt it?

You have an amazing blog with wonderful pictures. I enjoy watching your work, it inspires me.

I don't think it is open yet.......

But you will find it near the end of the Corniche, almost opposite the fishermans harbour where all the old dows are.

It looks like a descendant of the Russian Pavillion at Expo 67 on Montreal.

Perfect framing and wonderful light

Hi, It is owned by Al Dar and it was supposed to be a Formula 1 coffee house, but last thing I heard that the idea was scrapped and now it is just sitting there. It is really nice and the inside was not completed because the project was halted.
