The Dubai Project, Wissen Media

The Dubai Project, Wissen Media

This non-fiction book documents in stunning pictures and up-to-date accounts the rise of a desert settlement to a high-tech paradise and centre of tourism and finance – an ascent unprecedented in regional history, save perhaps for the Tower of Babel.

The book discusses this development with all its facets, providing answers to questions about architecture without bounds, Dubai's Strategic Plan 2015, tourism amid splendour worthy of the Arabian Nights, the super-rich, the international business class and migrant workers, the contrast of Islamic tradition and unfettered capitalism, shopping without end, ecological problems – it affords insight into all these and many more topics.
