Abu Dhabi World Trade Centre

Foster + Partners provide the eco-friendly centrepiece to the Al Raha development

The Abu Dhabi World Trade Centre (WTC) by Foster + Partners is the signature element of the Al Raha development, an 11km stretch of shoreline along mainland Abu Dhabi that will form a new waterfront city for 120,000 residents.

Developed by ALDAR Properties, which owns 30 million square metres of land in the emirate, Al Raha is an extended free zone, where foreign businesses can base their operations and enjoy tax exemption as well as 100 per cent ownership (companies based in Abu Dhabi outside of the free zones are obliged to be 51 per cent or more owned by an Emirati national). Foster designed the WTC using environmental software, with curves and indents designed to minimise solar gain.
