Book Description:

Essays in The Superlative City examine the speed and aesthetic brashness of Dubai's development in the early twenty-first century. Considering both visually arresting and less sensational elements of architecture, they situate Dubai's urbanism in its contexts of architecture, urban planning and design, and historical and cultural processes.
