Dubai seems to be very ahead architecturally. Many interesting buildings are coming up. Some unbelievable structurally, some unthinkable aesthetically. But I think it's heading in the wrong direction.

They have lots of money and they are spending anything to build anything. They have missed the relationship between the words 'architecture' and 'dwelling'. And moreover, they are strongly influencing others.......

Well dubai is a very rich place.

And further, the crown prince is eager to spend his whole wealth for the rebeautification of this sandy heaven.

No doubt you will find architectural wonders there...

I wish i was in dubai...
