If you have ever visited Dubai and seen the beautiful modern architecture with high-rise buildings and beautiful lighting, then you might understand how the city is a dream for architecture enthusiasts. Historical monuments show their own attention to detail with hand-crafted pillars and exquisite ceilings in the buildings. The Taj Mahal, Pyramids in Egypt, Ajanta caves, and Chichen Itza are great examples of these monuments. Granted, historical agriculture has its own grace, but there is no denying that modern architecture can leave you just as flabbergasted.

Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, stands tall at about eight hundred and thirty meters high touching the clouds. The glass pyramidical structure applies complex physics and architecture to remain safe and impress the gaze of tourists from all over the world. The same can be said about Atlantis, the palm. Not only is it located on a man-made island at the tip of the palm, but it stands as a perfect representation of its name, Atlantis: A eutopia of advanced civilization. The wide mesmerizing architecture of the building came up to about 1.5 billion U.S. Dollars. It is home to hotels, cafes, and even a water park. Tourists travel from far away to witness the beauty of the Atlantis opposite the coast of the ocean. The night view is a whole different experience from the extravagant costs of lighting up the horizon with its design.

Next, Dubai plans to take architecture to newer levels with its dynamic towers. The proposed skyscraper could be a 420-meter, 80-floor building that revolves throughout the day. Imagine waking up to one view and going to be with another one. The building will be like nothing before it and really be a wonder worth seeing. Modern architecture may or may not be as graceful as historical monuments, but they are a wonder all the same.
