Is there a reason for dubai's towers to be so thin not like huge towers?

From my point of view, maybe this help to prevent the wind resistant. Dubai does experience sandstorms and strong wind

Where's the soul ? Where are the pedestrians ? Where's the city ?
Even Cheung Chau , the fishing village lost in the archipelago of Hong Kong feels to me more urban and dense !

It isn't a city nor a metropolis , it's a pile of talll vacant building surrounded by oilfields and snakes , it hasn't a city vibe , it hasn't a soul , it's just extravagant and surrealistic ( in the negative sense) , the city has no culture , no style , no real streetlife !

Anyone could construct dozen of supertalls and giant malls in nowhere as long as money is abundant , but it's much much harder to give them a real identity and a character ....

I didn't say that Cheing Chau is like Dubai , I said that this fishing village looks much more dense and interesting , it has this authenticity that doesn't exist in the Tall , magnificient and modern Dubai !

Same can be said to most of the (newly built) chinese cities as well.

I'm not a defender of the chinese model , I don't appreciate their construction's style ,I find their Residential buildings awfull , but we cannot compare , China has more than 1 Billion and Half of citizens , they're obliged to expand their urban areas to lodge the big population that is coming from the rural regions , they need these devlopments , but Dubai doesn't need the dozen 60 storeys buildings that they have with their limited population , the more I see what they're doing the more I become convinced that their target is "the prestige" , they're building to embelish the skyline ( that I don't find so breath taking ) and not to improve or develop or to provide more space ...

Does your fishing village have 2 million and a half million habitants and a bigger size than London? There aren't people on the streets because it's extremely hot, and all the people is in the shopping centers or in indoor spaces...

Chongqing has more than 40M , but the majority live in rural areas , so he population doesn't mean anything , there're cities with only 1 Million wich feels more urban and dense than 5M+ Cities same thing for the size .
And the temperature isn't an excuse for not having culture and authenticity !
