yup, my mom thinks dubai is a typical oil rich middle eastern nation (not a nation, i know, UAE is the nation) caught in the midst of ethnic war and islamic fundamentalism, and so on...i showed her pics of burj dubai, and a few of the other megaprojects and i think she may have entered early menopause....

something id like to see if its possible would be a panorama of what dubai should look like in 2010 or so. if someone can post something like that i shall give you a cookie.

Dubai is awesome! I cant think of any better way to describe this city than F*CKING INCREDIBLE!

There's no image of what Dubai will look like in 2010 but malec made a great 3d image using google sketchup of the new downtown which comprises of almost 800 towers including several supertalls and over 4 super-duper talls (400m plus) ... (burj dubai complex, business bay, DIFC, and sheikh zayed road)...

And some more proposals, this time found by me today on www.archinect.com



A house






Grand Stand






A hotel next to the emirates towers, looks like this has no chance of being built since the new supertall that looks like united towers is to be built here








Jadaf Competition, this looks great!




Museum of light (dunno what the hell this is)








A proposal for the marina, too bad a crappy tower like iris blue has taken its place.




Another marina proposal






Medical Research Centre






Museum of replicas (very fitting for dubai )






Museum of weapons






An office tower




Orthopedics lab




A theatre






A tower called “the edge”






Another tower






Transect Residence






Proposals for a gate and a building in the new zoo

Some of the projects are jawdropping and some of them are too overdone.

the Jadaf towers are cool. And the Museum of Replicas and Weapons almost looks the same. Also I wonder how you would get into the Museum of light, that's a weird looking building.

Some interestin low rise buildings.
