Here you go for the Dubai Marina skyline, and the biggies are yet to come.

Not looking to start trouble, but is the occupancy in all those towers really legit? Something just seems wrong with THAT much built up in the tan buildings.

Pretty easy vote. 10/10. The architecture in Dubai is beautiful and looks like a city from the future.

As per Wikipedia, a SKYLINE is best described as the overall or partial view of a city's tall buildings and structures consisting of many skyscrapers in front of the sky in the background. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates.

For those who look down at Dubai, please look at its Skyline objectively. It may be artificial, a ghost town or whatever you want to describe it, Dubai skyline is definitely one of the best in the world.

We are talking about the SKYLINE of Dubai here and not the city of Dubai itself.

I gave it 9.5 for now. But few years from now, once those underconstruction buildings are all done, a vote of 10 is well-deserved.

There is one thing I don't like...all the cream/tan. Not one of my favourite colours. Otherwise all good! 9/10

Awful ersatz "look at me" pointlessness. The expression of vulgarity mistaken for ambition. Truly hideously awful in conception and appearance. Plastic city.

City: 10/10
Skyline: 10/10
Landscaping: 10/10
Climate: 0/10

They need to build a artificial mountain range to block out the hot desert winds and maybe climate will be 10/10 also

Population: 1/10 ... seriously need more people living here personally i think the climate is the main turnoff.

Really like the houses on the palm islands

I think if UAE govt wants to build a mountain, they will built it and thats wot they have done for all the dream projects in the last 10 years. However taking into consideration of the current financial situation they may think twice before building one thoug.....

The next dubai+newyork in the making is Mumbai and iam sure the pace at which the city is growing, its gonna be a mix of dubai and new york combined after 10 years...

cheers

Mumbai ? i doubt it really ... has it not had a hundred years already for that to happen ? perhaps some Drastic changes have taken place that i am unaware of though.

Pros:

Good shape and balance from most angles
BK and Emirates towers add much needed distinction

Cons:

Some of the most hideous residential buildings in the world
Low density

I'd give it a 7.5/10 for now.

Dubai's skyline is a perfect dime

@sathya_226
Most of mumbai's buildings have very poor cladding with only brown paint on them and most of Mumbai's supertalls are cancelled and will never be built.
