A city

A vibrant and live city, Dubai !

I remember coming to this city on early 2000, right above the immigration counter there was a quote “It takes generations to build a city, we are doing it in less than one”

It is remarkable to see how they city was developed in few years to this level.

The credit for making this remarkable city, without any doubt goes to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In his own word he says., “Dubai will never settle for anything less than first place.” He further adds, “Most people talk; we do things. They plan; we achieve. They hesitate; we move ahead. We are living proof that when human beings have the courage and commitment to transform a dream into reality, there is nothing that can stop them.”

 

Light in space

“Light should not interpret architecture; it must transform it!
Light should not enhance space and form; it should empower it!
Light is the life-force of man-made structures.
It is through light that events become meaningful.
Light marks our presence as alive and self-aware.
Burned in memory, light is profoundly experienced.”
Edward P. Bartholomew
