Foster + Partners masterplan for Masdar City, Abu Dhabi was awarded the Sustainability prize at Condé Nast Traveller magazines Design &Innovation Awards in London last night. The New Bus for London initiative, in which Foster + Partners and Aston Martins design won first prize for its redesign of the Routemaster, was also recognised with an award.

Lord Foster, who collected the awards, said:
This is an excellent result and I am delighted that Masdar City has been recognised for its innovation in the field of sustainability. It is a real privilege to be working on such a remarkable project. Its aim to create a carbon neutral, zero-waste desert community is a world first.
