Abu Dhabi builds world’s largest mosaic of recycled materials


ABU DHABI – It is official! The world’s largest mosaic made from recycled materials has been created in Abu Dhabi.

Masdar City officially broke the Guinness World Record when it created the gigantic mosaic within one month.

The mosaic contains almost 90,500 recycled items, including plastic bottles, cans and cardboard. It measures 1,015 square metres, or around the size of two basketball courts.

It was pieced together by the local community, including Masdar City employees, tenants, residents and school children.

The artwork shows the evolution of the UAE, from its origins through to today and looking to the future, and it features key landmarks from all seven emirates.

Representatives from Guinness World Records presented Masdar City with the official record certificate in a special ceremony at the city.

“This wonderful mosaic makes the sustainability debate more tangible and accessible through the universal medium of art, and demonstrates the commitment of the people of the UAE to protecting the environment,” said Yousef Baselaib, Executive Director, Sustainable Real Estate, Masdar.

The mosaic will be on display at Masdar City and can be viewed from the observation deck at the city. ICA/Expat Media
