Yey!!

Thank you very much for keeping that thread really active.

It seems that they have 4 cranes again. On the picture just above, I count 3 on the building and one a little bit on the right

That's true. Here in Germany most of the buildings are old and was built in the 19th century.
To travel to Dubai is like travel 50 years in the future.

Dubai is ofcourse an amazing city
but..
you can not ignore german architecture!

first of all , most of tourists wanna travel to see historical places , not towers!

second , if germany wants , they can make more modern towers , just they do not really care to spend money on tower, instead they spend for their healthcare,education system and ...

third! do not forget many GERMAN COMPANIES are building those towers in dubai , or at least european companies

fourth! soon,in just some years, there will be lots of cities full of modern towers in the world , but which city can and will have historical architecture? is it even possible?
is it even possible to Make even 1 historical building in the world?

although i agree german buildings are not ANCIENT! but they are like 200 years old and this is their identity , which they will never gain with towers and ...

and last , dubai is for sure a beautiful modern city , but there are people,countries that prefer historical cities! historical buildings and ancient architecture!

Thanks!

Old or new is irrelevant. How they are up-kept is.

You make it sound like skyscrapers are built by the government.

Yes. I didn't say the buildings in Germany are ugly, but i prefer modern and big cities.
Cities like Munich or Hamburg are beautiful and have historical building, but Cologne for example is a dirty city and many building's aren't really nice...
Maybe I have a different point of view, because I see the german, historical buildings every day. It isn't something special for me any more.
