Over three years ago I went on a family holiday to Dubai and seen some really amazing buildings and structures have any of you guys visited the U.A.E and seen these buildings?
I haven't been to Dubai..but yes it is the place where the world of architecture is growing very fast.
Many of the world's biggest projects are running there...World is still waiting to see the completion of project like Palm Island..
Its a heaven on earth for people like me.... :-}
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.......
I wonder how they have came so far so fast?. Is there any major architecture college's there that you guys have heard of?.
Yeah i think dubai is a blight in the architectural world. Its lifeless and very plastic.
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...
