Mashrabiya - ADIC Headquarter
#1
Mashrabiya - Abu Dhabi Investment Council Headquarters 
Aedas Architects , Façade engineering by arup.

The towers are overclad on the south, west and east elevations by a unique dynamic shading system, a modular ‘Mashrabiya’ that opens and closes to provide self-shading as the sun moves around the building. The system is predicted to reduce the solar energy entering the building by 20% and is one of a number of innovative measures to improve environmental performance and limit energy use.
