Dubai has some very futuristic buildings. But it has TONS of cheesy buildings. Singapore is pretty much all class.

Very little of Dubai actually looks futuristic. It's simply new. It is not way-cool. It is not dense. It is mostly fake. It's the same reason I'd never argue that Las Vegas is futuristic.
