Rem Koolhaas Does Dubai Deathstar

Yet another example of the refined subtlety, minimalism and restrained taste that Dubai is known for.  And, yes, I’m being sarcastic.  From today’s New York Times:

“Mr. Koolhaas’s master plan for the proposed 1.5-billion-square-foot Waterfront City in Dubai would simulate the density of Manhattan on an artificial island just off the Persian Gulf. A mix of nondescript towers and occasional bold architectural statements, it would establish Dubai as a center of urban experimentation as well as one of the world’s fastest growing metropolises.”
