Peter Oborn, Deputy Chairman of Aedas Architects Ltd, will describe the process associated with the design and delivery of the practice’s international competition winning project for a new headquarters building for the Abu Dhabi Investment Council, the form of which is based upon a pre-rationalised geometry derived from Islamic principles of design and the façade of which features a dynamic ‘mashrabiya’ which opens and closes in response to the sun, reducing solar gain by over 50%. The project, which is due for occupation at the end of this year, has recently received the 2012 inaugural Innovation Award from the Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) in Chicago.
