Dubailand - The Intrepid

DubailandDubailand is an entertainment and commercial real estate complex currently under construction in Dubai. It's slated for completion in 2020, but who knows if it'll be finished now.

A fantastic photo essay on Dubai's unbridled materialism by the New York Times's Lauren Greenfield.

"I call the story an improbable fairy tale," Greenfield said. "Anything that could be fantasized could be built. It really was the land of opportunity. It’s more Las Vegas than Las Vegas."
