A metropolis built at breakneck speed in the desert. It's like Blade Runner without the rain.
I struggle to define it, or understand its soul. If it indeed has one.
Everything is new-very little history remains- it looks to the future and builds its own history.
90% of the people are ex-pats flocking to the honey pot.
Consumerism on steroids.
All buildings- big ones and bigger ones. It’s like a living catalogue for skyscrapers. An architect’s dream as property developers try to outdo each other by building bigger, better, best and whatever comes after best.
It reminds me of the lines by the character Syndrome in the movie ‘The Incredibles’ “I’ll sell my inventions so that everyone can be super heroes. Everyone can be super. And when everyone’s super no one will be.”
