When did hating on Dubai become a thing? Is it a meme in the architecture circles or something? Is Dubai to urban development what Nickelback is to music? A fashionable target to be bashing for no particular reason?
Dubai is a stupid Potemkin Village which would not exist but for the supersized wealth and 'turn-a-blind-eye' labour 'laws' that deploy it in built form. It's a ridiculous set-piece for the disastrous, late-capital, charade which is currently playing itself out across the globe.
