    Just read a cool article about proposals of new buildings in Dubai. Already there are some beauties in the making and it is surely going to be one of the most stunning cities in the world very very soon. But I came across a rather interesting design lol The designer in question says:

    "Good architects borrow but great architects steal"

    Thoughts and opinions? lol If this gets made, I'm taking up my best friend's offer, and Anakin and I are going immediately to Dubai to see this! lol

    I've seen this concept before, however didn't know if it was a serious thing and certainly didn't know that if it was going to be built it would be in Dubai. I don't think that project proposal would pass. GL could maybe sue them if they did make it lol.

    Well it's a serious proposal, if that is what you mean. I've seen some other really crazy/awesome buildings they are really making in dubai like a tower, where each level of ground turns all the time, skyscrapers that look like tentacles and such.

    Yeah this is a real proposal, whether it gets made or not is another thing though lol I really hope so though my best friend lives in Dubai and keeps asking us to go and visit her, this very well could seal the deal lol

    What a crazy place Dubai is. Recently a British couple was jailed there for kissing on a public beach, but building the Death Star is just another run-of-the-mill project, eh? Well, if the Death Star's Superlaser is operational, all the "lovebirds" better watch out! LOL!

    Actually they were doing more than just kissing. My best friend lives in Dubai, she keeps asking me and Anakin to go and visit her, we'll get around to it at some point I'm sure. But yeah, if you want to go to Dubai, best to make sure you know the laws first. Whether you agree with them or not, still don't want to get your ass thrown in jail for holding your boyfriend's hand in public :s *gulp* lol

    Dubai is an insane place, so this wouldn't surprise me in the least. They have a man-made island-chain in the shape of a world map. I definitely want to go there sometime in my life regardless of if they build the death-star or not.
