79-story apartment tower in Dubai engulfed in flames!!http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6724728
In reference to Star Wars-The Force Awakens being released this weekend, I bring you two photos. First, Galactic City:Second, Dubai -- a photo from Doug Nagy....
Never been to Dubai but from what I've seen on google street view, Dubai looks like the most artificial city I've ever seen. It's pretty much one main strip of really tall skyscrapers. The lack of intricate side streets and alley ways is a bummer. I'm sure it will change over the decades, but I'm not sure how this differentiates between say Vegas or other artificial cities other than the fact it's more business orientated regarding the skyscrapers being built.IMO the city has a neat futuristic niche going but at this point everything currently about the city screams no character, nor a soul for that matter. Dubai looks like oil tycoon the city.
