These awesome photos are from Laboratory for Visionary Architecture's (LAVA) winning entry for an urban centre in Masdar.

Not only is the Masdar Urban Centre going to be beautiful with its snowflake-like design, it will also be a zero-carbon, zero-waste city.

The centre of the Masdar Urban Centre will have giant movable sunshades which cover the public piazza. It will also have hotel, retail and leisure facilities.

Laboratory for Visionary Architecture’s design is set to cover 6 million square meters upon completion.
