Yas Marina Hotel / Abu Dhabi Architects. The Arab countries have developed a lot lately because of the power to have as much oil. Of course, this is reflected in the way of looking at cities as well as investment in the building department. This is the explanation for amazing hotels that have emerged in recent years in this region, many of them too daring to believe they are real. A good example is the Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi, which is the first hotel in the world that was built on an F1 circuit. But this is only the tip of the iceberg, as there are many other things which are seen in this hotel.
This hotel was designed by Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture of Asymptote Architecture in New York. This is the ultimate proof that you can do everything you dream if you have enough money for it. The hotel is actually two separate buildings, each with twelve stories. One of them is constructed above the circuit F1 and the other in the Bay Marina, the two parts are connected by a bridge of glass covered. The complex has 499 rooms, 75 suites and 7 restaurants.
The hotel opened its doors in November 2009, launched in 2007. Architects and designers who work for this project has sought to combine a modern and futuristic elements of culture and Islamic traditions. But what is really unusual in this place and attracts many tourists is the metal roof steel is commonly known as Shelt network. Includes a LED lighting system that covers the entire network and changes color. It seems that the whole structure as a network or a network that lights the night and you can see from a distance. It adds a lot of charm to the place and attracts many onlookers. This feature and many others make it a benchmark for Abu Dhabi and the Emirates.
