Global warming is bullshit. Designs to save resources are great, but don't try to link them to global warming, which doesn't even exist. Besides, carbon dioxide doesn't cause global warming. Like it or not, Dubai has used their money to build one of the best and most massive skylines on earth. Your post is bullshit. Don't come on here if all your going to do is troll.

Ryugyong Hotel is what I would call retro-futuristic.

For a building that broke ground the same year as Ryugyong Hotel, the Lippo Centre is still incredibly futuristic.

Never seen these before; Just looked them up and was amazed by the fact that they were completed in 1988 with such futuristic designs.

NatGeo showed a documentary last night of a twisty-looking skyscraper in Abu Dhabi where the core was built at an angle and then straightened by the weight of the floors, using tension to keep the whole structure in place. Forget the name of the tower but it made previously impossible shapes possible.
