Dubai is know for its off the wall architecture, but check out architect Rem Koolhaas’ latest proposal for Dubai’s new convention and exhibition center. I can hear Admiral Ackbar now: “We can’t stand up to conventions of that magnitude!”
Koolhaas (cool name) says he modeled this building on an old Panasonic radio from 1972. Whatever dude. You’ll get more geek cred by saying you’ve always wanted to build the Death Star, and now you have the chance to. Unfortunately, the convention center won’t be life size, or come equipped with planet busting weaponry. And I have to wonder how useful the space inside will actually be.
Still, a cool idea though.
