Yup. Think of all the supertalls going up in China! As awesome as Dubai is, I'm sick to ****ing death of people making the assumption that EVERYTHING is made for Dubai.

A prime example (of a new tower) would be the Chicago Spire. That tower I cannot imagine in Dubai's skyline. It looks nice in Chicago and was designed FOR Chicago's skyline.
As with The Constellation, it was designed for DOHA, and as thus I believe it won't be as striking if it was in Dubai..


Anyway sorry for going off topic. ^_^; [promises to be more on topic]
