Dubai is a unique example of a city that has witnessed an Architectural development which has put itself in the global world map. The changing skyline is an example of transformation of the city in the past few decades to create architectural marvels. The Manipal University Dubai School of Design & Architecture, with which the UIC Barcelona has a Mobility Programme agreement, will host a new edition of the Global Tall Building Studio, in April 2017*.
Dubai, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, is home to 911 completed high-rises, 88 of which stand taller than 180 metres. The tallest man-made tower ‘Burj Khalifa’ rises 828 metres and contains 163 floors. Overall, the city has 18 completed and topped-out buildings that rise at least 300 metres in height, which is more than any other city in the world, and based on the average height of the ten tallest completed buildings, Dubai has the tallest skyline in the world. Given its strategic location as the center of the global economy, Dubai is emerging as a global hub and with various design offices across the globe established in this region.
