This case study focuses on the Masdar City, a warm and humid, net-zero city project located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The project is distinguished by the fact that the thermal response relies on the outdoor climate and the use of mechanical HVAC systems has been minimized. This study introduces the unique sustainable and passive features of the urban design, how did it mitigate the extreme climate conditions in the local area and creates a thermal comfort for the occupants of this city.
