The more sucessful Dubai is the more pissed off are the haters.

Reason to be pissed of: The construction of the Freedom Tower is extreme slow, Chicago spire will not be the tallest residential tower, the property bubble in the USA exploded, property in Dubai is still healthy, the US goverment wasting 700billions of tax money,but at least the companioes can stay in the skyscrapers in New York and some new can be build with tax money. In Dubai there haven`t been a terrorists attack and the city is safe.


The difference between just two years.

Dubai just doesn't seem real to me. It reminds me of a whole bunch of cardboard cut outs that you find at movie theatres. Sure it has the height, sure it has the number of skyscrapers, but it's just missing a lot of stuff. Perhaps I like the skyscrapers from the early 1900's to about 1980, but it just seems so fake.

dubai: 8/10
it isn't one of those skylines with historical background, but it's something new... like a playground for all architects over the world to test some new styles... like it... until now, everything worked out (imo)...

Ersatz, kitsch and transient.

Possibly the most pointless place on earth.

Am I correct in assuming that by spam post you mean posts suggesting that Dubai is what in fact it is....a kitsch, ersatz vanity project with no aesthetic appeal?

I ask to be sure to avoid being banned.

Yes!

Let's make sure you know exactly what's going on since it's very easy.

is not. For this go to the city discussions forum and you can talk about all this stuff provided the thread stays under control.
