The Death Star…in Dubai!


I just couldn’t resist posting this proposal for RAK convention and exhibition center in Ras al Khaimah, Dubai by Rem Koolhas and Reiner de Graaf of OMA – it is just like the Death Star from The Star Wars saga!
It reminded me and old post about how post-modern architecture seems, sometimes, to be completely useless…How to look at Architecture…as a completely useless activity
In the day that CERN announces the discovery of Higgs Boson “God Particle”, we can only imagine how close the construction of the Death Star might be: now we just need to scale up this new building about 100 times, take it to a foreign galaxy and conquer the universe with an array of ridiculous new building shapes! (just Kidding).
