The Chicago Tribune [r.r] today reported that a Chicago architectural firm, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill who also designed the Hancock Building and the Sears Tower, has designed a 2000 feet skyscraper in the UAE – to be build by the Saudi Binladen Group. It will be called Burj Dubai (Dubai Tower).The realty group, Emaar, has much more infoon their website which touts the world’s biggest mall and somesuch. Looks impressive and, uh, unnecessary. But then, I hate malls.
I have to admit that Dubai will be one of the most architecturally impressive cities in the world. I love the Burj AlArab. Anyways, BigUp to Chicago firm.
