Development Then and Now in Dubai

Tom Fletcher’s Essential Architecture web site has some fascinating pictures taken in 1990, 2003 and 2008 of a street in Dubai plus many other shots of architectural landmarks in the Emirates.

No wonder the pictures are supplemented by words and phrases such as ‘crazy’, ‘Dubai is Nuts’ and ‘What the hell is going on there?’

What is your response to Dubai architecture as you see these pics?
