The UAE has been spending billions of dollars to construct new urban developments in order to satisfy the country’s fast development, which started since the country was founded in 2 December 1971. The architecture in the major cities such as Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah has been shifting into large-scale projects or the so-called mega projects. Such projects typically involve tower architecture. These huge developments are manifested by the continuous vibrant change of the cities’ skylines, which sometimes could be noticed easily within a few weeks.
