In my work I compare the city planning of Beijing, China and Masdar, United Arab Emirates. Masdar is a zero emissions city of the future, which has attained its green certifications due to careful, environmentally conscious planning. On the other hand, Beijing was planned for rapid growth, which has created an industrial atmosphere that relies on fossil fuels.
