5/5 stars

Great showcase of stunning architecture (2/2 people found this helpful)

Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R2QBKF5FSA72G7 I've always been fascinated by Dubai's architectural growth.

This book is a showcase of some of the finest and spectacular architecture in Emirates. 20 architects are featured, under them a few buildings.

Some of the buildings include Dancing Towers, Pentominium, Strata Towers, Burj Al Arab, Opus Office Tower, Manhal Oasis, National Bank of Abu Dhabi and many others.

It's hard to review an architecture book so I've included a video.

Here's the product description from the book jacket:

The small emirates and states located on the Gulf, at the eastern edge of the Saudi Arabian peninsula, are building new cities in the desert at an astonishing rate, from Bahrain to Doha, and south to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Comprised of Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain, the UAE is an oil-and-gas-rich region that has experienced an unparalleled architectural boom in recent years. With a dizzying array of ultra-modern towers popping up throughout the area, it's no surprise that the Gulf region has attracted many of the world's most prominent architects, including Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and Jean Nouvel, who are all designing groundbreaking projects for the ambitious Cultural District project on Saadiyat Island off the coast of Abu Dhabi. With these and many more remarkable, large-scale projects recently built or in progress, the Gulf emirates are perhaps today's top architectural hotspot.
