The Money Tree

 
One of my all-time favourite buildings in the city is the iconic Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) Tower. Built in 2006, it was once the tallest building in the city at 185 m. It’s now dropped down to number 13 with the Domain (Central Market) currently taking top spot at 382 m. According to http://www.emporis.com/ the ADIA Tower  has an innovative double-glazed facade, curtained with automatic blinds and air-conditioning inside the two glass panels which is controlled by the direction of the sun and the heat on the inside and outside of the windows - Cool (literally!)

I've just read about the world's latest tallest building and saw a mention of Abu Dhabi too. Just popping by for a quick armchair...well, dining-room chair...travel.
