This isn’t a Fata Morgana.
The Oasis Eco Resort is a proposed development in the Liwa region of the United Arab Emirates, just south of the capital of Abu Dhabi. Slated to open in 2020, the resort was designed by London-based Baharash Architecture.
Despite being in a desert, it will be one of the greenest resorts in the world. Sustainable features will include wastewater recycling, a zero-emission zone, and enough solar panels to feed the entirety of the resort’s energy needs. While construction is scheduled to begin in 2018, Baharash has shared several renderings.
