Area: 6 ha campus
Contribution: Public realm and media guidelines
Client: Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company

Masdar is an ambitious, experimental new city being built in Abu Dhabi to demonstrate the potentials of low carbon development.  Designed by Norman Foster, the project incorporates a car free environment with natural ventilation and widespread use of  on-site photovoltaic power generation.  Masdar Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) is the first phase of the development, which has recently been completed. 

Dennis Frenchman was retained by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company PJSC to work with the Foster firm on design and programming of the public realm of MIST, including exterior and ground floor spaces.  Furthermore, to develop a strategy to make the environment digitally responsive, encouraging students and faculty to support the overall goal of low energy consumption in the project.  Working with the Foster firm, Frenchman designed a system that would make users aware of the energy performance of the environment through subtle changes in lighting, movable shading devices, and information devices places at strategic locations.  These devices would respond to queries by providing information on energy use of the surrounding space, compare the performance of MIST to other campuses like MIT, as well as collect information on the individual’s comfort level to help tune environmental conditions in real time

马斯达尔是一个雄心勃勃的、实验性的新城市,正在阿布扎比建造,以展示低碳发展的潜力。该项目由诺曼·福斯特设计,城市是一个无汽车的自然通风环境,并使用现场的光伏发电。马斯达尔科学技术研究所(MIST)是第一阶段的项目,已经完成建设。

丹尼斯教授被阿布扎比未来能源公司PJSC聘请,与福斯特公司合作设计和规划MIST的公共领域,包括外部和底层的空间。此外,还有制定策略,促成环境数字化反馈,鼓励学生和教师支持低能耗的总体目标。与福斯特事务所合作,丹尼斯教授设计了一个系统,让用户通过灯光、移动遮阳设备和信息设备在特定位置上的细微变化,了解环境的能耗性能。
