now we once more get off topic to stupid things

when have you worked here???
many of the existing buildings are 10 years old and only a handful is new and many of the new towers under c and approved have great designs

and many famous international architects have projects here in dubai. the architect with the most projects here is ws atkins!

but can you tell me the color of dubai? purple or blue or even yellow?

yes, sure we don't have open space here. what the heck are you talking about???

I gotta say the people who designed this thing grew a brain when they moved it to Dubai Abu-Dhabi didnt look like it had anything special to see.

dubai seems like it would be cool to go to. I'd like to see all these new projects going up. Also that hotel I always see on the travel channel is pretty cool looking.

I don't think I'll be going for a long while though. For some reason I just can't feel safe traveling to an area of the world surrounded by so many terrorist and people who hate you just because your from the west.

There are tens of thousands of westerners living in Dubai and at least 1 milion (western) tourists visiting.

Kinda reminds me of fantasy renderings in Mechanics Illistrated in the 70's. Kinda funky, in a vulgar sort of way.

UAE doesn't need ferris wheels to impress anyone...they should start with something more basic...like establishing some better human rights or something...that would impress me.

^ Why when I saw your name the first thing comming to my mind was that you'd have posted such kind of coments.

I don't know why you even bother postin in a skyscraper forum, when yopur posts have nothing to do with architecture and construction.

^ The plan is to be open by 2008, but I think 2009 is more likely.
