I'm getting confused between Dubai the Emirate and Dubai the "city" now. What is it? Dubai city within the Dubai emirate?

“... Here in the States, you can tell a mile away that a hospital is a hospital, a hotel is a hotel, and an office building is an office building. We are conditioned to design these building-types because of our environment, economy, and market demands. But what I’ve learned is: Does a building really need to always look that way? Do office buildings always need to look the way they do?"

Absolutely superb.

The best project I've seen in quite a while, if not the best.

AWESOME!

What i red last week was that the UAE is trying to create a new city, a "virgin" city when the petrol and all the reserves starts getting out.. so then UAE is trying to create an economic, turistic, business, etc. center in all the world to have a real good estability during the years.

True or not?

Models look great. They ain't half big either. It's going to be a bit of a squeeze getting the floorplates jsut right for the core.
