I’m not a big city person.
Having used to living in metropolitans my whole life, the sight of towering mountains impress me more than skyscrapers. But I have a soft spot for cities that can transform us through time. And Dubai qualifies: its harder, better, faster, stronger approach in architecture has resulted in some of the most exceptional superlatives in recent history.
But in hindsight, while Dubai impresses, it also underwhelms.
