City Plate - Dubai

$50.00
Part of our second series of City Plates.  The theme of this second collection is "Culture and Capital(ism)," and the cities chosen are New Orleans and Washington, D.C., both rich in history and culture, and the booming megalopolises of Las Vegas and Dubai.  With this theme we ask: how does a capital investment in manufacturing culture impact city form?

A city where man-made islands are fashioned in the shape of palm trees and plans for the world’s first rotating skyscraper are underway, Dubai is Las Vegas on steroids.  The city’s erratic, spiraling layout is the combined result of a rich history that dates to at least 3000 B.C. and the contemporary drive to create and contain the perfect artificial environment.  The Dubai plate is distinguished by the vast blue expanse of the Persian Gulf.  The city has a strange, mesmerizing form that owes its unique patterns to the explosion of commerce and trade.  Along the shore is Jebel Ali, the largest man-made harbor in the world.
