Typical Dubai towers


These two towers, close to my hotel in Dubai Media City, are fairly typical of the many towers in the region, most of which are still under construction.

While these are of standard materials (i.e. reinforced concrete) the sandy colour and local styling of the arches and domes gives them a rather attractive feel and also helps to differentiate Dubai from other skyscraper cities in the world.
