Too big for a selfie, big enough to be considered the next Dubai landmark. Indeed, it is best to consider the landmarks of Dubai on a macro and not micro level, and what best than a framing structure over the entire city of Dubai?
In the last years, after the 2008 crisis, Dubai has invested more and more on quality than quantity, adding to its landscape, projects designed by named architects such as Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid to name just a few. One of the last design is by the architect Fernando Donis. In 2008 Donis won an international competition out of 926 proposals. The contest was overseen by the German ThyssenKrupp Elevator, and governed by the rules of the International Union of Architects, an organization affiliated with Unesco that lays down a code of conduct for professionals.
