SPOTLIGHT: Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) | MASDAR CITY CENTRE

LAVA was founded by Chris Bosse, Tobias Wallisser and Alexander Rieck in 2007.  It is a network of creative minds with a research and design focus.  LAVA is a GLOBAL company, having offices in Sydney, Shanghai, Stuttgart and Abu Dhabi.

"LAVA’s winning design for the city centre of Masdar, the world’s first eco city, includes a plaza, five-star hotel, a convention centre, entertainment complex and retail facilities. The entire area is designed as one continuous, spatial, interactive environment - a ‘loop’. The “Oasis of the Future”, a mediated outdoor space, is an open spatial experience, with solar-powered sunflower umbrellas."

LAVA believes "the future wellbeing of cities around the globe depends on mankind’s ability to develop and integrate sustainable technology."

LAVA is one of the brilliant design firms featured in our forthcoming BOOK!
