Cultural Vs. Functional Trends and the Architectural Form: Case

Auther : Dr. Mashary A. Al-Naim - Dr. Mohammed A. Al-Mansori

     Growth acceleration of the United Arab Emirates cities will change their identities to global cities which may produce unidentifiable architecture for the local societies. One of the most important phenomenon caused by this change is that the resulted architecture created an image different from what local people expected. In this sense, questions such as: can we identify the new meanings that contemporary architecture in the UAE convey locally and internationally? Is it possible to say that this architecture represents the local identity of the UAE? This paper tries to study the impact of the capitalism trends, and their impact on architecture, and the formation of UAE cities, and diagnose the impact of huge real estate development on how architects and planners think about the built environment in the Emirates.
