Abu Dhabi Architecture

Over the past few weeks, I've been collecting photos of the buildings in Abu Dhabi. The architecture is so varied here, it's just amazing. Here are a few of the more interesting buildings.
This is one of the high rise apartment buildings we looked at. The building isn't that unique, but I thought the photo angle was interesting.
We're standing on the steps of the Emirates Palace hotel and these are across the street. I think they might be luxury apartment buildings.
Not sure what this building is - I'm guessing some kind of apartments.

Etihad is the main airline in the UAE - this is their corporate office in Abu Dhabi.
Any guesses what this bright gold colored building might be? ... see below for the answer.
This is actually a dome inside one of the shopping malls. The light wasn't great, so it's hard to see, but those are all stained glass windows ... in a mall!
This is Khalidiya public park in the foreground and check out the interesting building in the background.
Two interesting ones in this photo - notice the tall one is still under construction.
Office buildings?

Did you guess the bright gold building above was a hospital? :)
