Why do some people say Dubai's skyline is tacky? It has such a diverse look to it, and the middle eastern inspire architecture is gorgeous.

^ Real middle eastern architecture is gorgeous. Dubai has some amazing buildings, but unfortunately all those residential skyscrapers do look tacky.

...Not only some people but many!..Why?:because most of the buildings are tacky!Also,seems like they don't know what the city planning is in Dubai.
Moreover,it's a vanity city built in twenty years!
Rome wasn't built in a day.

^ I think it wouldn't matter anymore how was it done or built or how long it took to make them look like that or if it's done just in one click. But one thing is for sure, Dubai really has a fascinating skyline, though I agree with some of you here, they're built for the sake of being built. Vanity, yes, so what, they have lots of gold to spend.

It does matter:good things take time to come to fruition;nine months in your case!!

I understand your point, man. Maybe those are already the "good things" they now have as a result of how far they have come for the past 20 years.

More like a sea of skyscrapers with huge green islands.

From the start was planned to be the greenest megacity in China (if not the world)

It will have giant parks and other big areas with green and lowrise buildings that are planned to stay for a long time. (the hatched sections) far from the concrete madness that is Shanghai for example.



But even with so much green areas, from some angles, will look very dense...
