From the Publisher. It took only a few years for Dubai and Abu Dhabi to become glittering metropolises with state-of-the-art technological standards, the highest highrises, the largest airports, and the world’s largest artificial islands. However, there still is no end in sight, and the other member states of The United Arab Emirates are following suit. DAAB publishers are responding to this highspeed development with a sequel to its first stocktaking in Dubai Architecture & Design. About 30 major projects of internationally leading architectural firms, either still in the planning phase or already under construction – among them the sustainable and CO2-neutral Masdar City by Foster + Partners – are comprehensively introduced with texts and photographs and with the already time-tested solicitude.
