Dubai Architecture Introduction
The emirate located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf is famous for its skyscrapers, and rampant commercial property development which came to a sudden halt in the economic crisis which swept the world in 2008.
Key structures to see are the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa tower, the iconic waterfront hotel Burj al Arab, and the unusual 0-14 tower.
