Abu Dhabi, UAE
The Presidential Palace complex in Abu Dhabi, UAE houses the central governmental buildings of the Emirates and residences for the leadership. The approach to the Palace from the road features 34 roadway water features that are star-shaped with a center cascading water effect and LED lighting. The property itself includes 27 significant features, all of which were designed with the added intent of being visible from the air, as most dignitaries will be flying in via helicopter. Among the variety of features are LED lit leaf petals that feature a fan of water and cascading overflows, parade ground features that utilize animated jets interspersed with palm trees to create the feel of an oasis, and hundreds of vertical water effects with lighting.
