Modern Architecture in Dubai

Dubai's megaprojects and architectural marvels

Dubai is known for creating groundbreaking architectural marvels that make headlines. That's no surprise with a skyline filled with iconic landmarks, including the instantly recognisable sail of the Burj Al Arab, the wave-like Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the triangular tips of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers. Already home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and massive Dubai Mall, the city continues to astound with twisting towers, majestic structures and lavish modern souks.

Dubai is futuristic in its approach, and yet manages to create iconic landmarks that are loved by all. Ain Dubai, the city's answer to the largest Ferris wheel, as well as urban expansions such as those of the Dubai Creek, Design District and large-scale, mixed-use projects like Mohammed Bin Rashid City, world-class theme parks and entertainment districts are helping Dubai create a future that is impressive, innovative and memorable.

Here are our top must-see Dubai attractions and architecture landmarks to visit during your stay.
