Petroleum Institute Master Plan

Abu Dhabi, UAE

Project Description

The Petroleum Institute campus lies between the Grand Mosque District and the Capital District in Abu Dhabi with visibility and access from the two main thoroughfares connecting the island to the mainland. The master plan responds to the regional prominence of the site through careful consideration of the views of the campus from the adjacent major thoroughfares, location of program devoted to the general public at the main entrance to the campus, and alignment of the main ceremonial axis with Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

These fundamental urban responses serve to organize the master plan design and ensure that the future campus will enhance the evolving urban experience of the adjacent areas of Abu Dhabi by considering the campus as an integral element in the urban fabric.
