60 Architectural Dubai Landmarks

From Man Made Islands to Cube Architecture

— November 18, 2010 — Eco
Barely two decades ago, the United Arab Emirates was a vast land filled with sand; however, should you decide to visit any time soon (and you should), you will notice that the vast desert now houses many Dubai landmarks. From the historical Burj Khalifa to Burj al Arab, Dubai has become the architectural home to some amazing engineering marvels.

This compilation of Dubai landmarks features mainly hotels, offices and upscale residential living, in which many top names in the fashion industry have decided to take part. Giorgio Armani, for instance, has opened up the Armani hotel in the hub of downtown Dubai.

So get your credit cards ready and prepare yourself for a technological journey to the future in Dubai.
