Dubai Buildings Are So High, You Can Look Down at the Clouds | Arabian Peninsula | Scoop.it

The architects say that their theoretical project was born from the interpretation of borders, conceived not only as a line which divides two places but, at the same time, as a meeting point between private and public space.
