Dubai is the most populous city in the world and has been adding superlatives to its name in terms of tourism and trade. This is because of the transformation of the desert city of Dubai into a global city with the tallest building in the world. Being one of the most important traders of petroleum and oil products, the city of Dubai, with a futuristic vision, realized the gradual shortage of resources in the following years. Hence, the modern city of Dubai, with a focus towards tourism and development now constitutes a number of skyscrapers, making it an amalgamation of architectural marvels. Because of the ignorance towards contexts of geography and climate, the design of the skyscrapers allow the usage of artificial systems only, hence making it one of the most expensive cities on earth.

And not to forget, Dubai is one of the most actively committed places investing in technology and Architecture.
