Major advances in the field of technology, are helping shape ambitious projects whose complexity seems to be mastered by the message of hope offered by research. Thus, urban planning has evolved, especially in recent years, and the old patterns of the land are now being replaced by another urban perspective: that of the ever-increasing growth. Indeed, the modern era seems to equate the power of a country and its economy, to the number and height of towers, and buildings, which add to its reputation. Thus one can see blooming gigantic projects to build new cities, particularly in areas of the globe as incongruous as on the sea or the desert, as is seen in the case of Dubai. Dust storms, arid climate and sands gave way to what is now aspiring to become the "world capital of luxury tourism".
Hotels, luxury villas and apartments, golf courses, amusement parks and even ski slopes have miraculously emerged from the sands in a few decades, on the basis of the vision of the UAE which opened the doors of this huge project to private industrialists from all backgrounds. Taking into account the striking social and economic inequalities that exist between the peoples of the world, it is reasonable to ask whether the successful example of the building of Dubai could replicated in other developing countries, and even be a solution for the least developed countries. To answer this question, this paper will begin the study with a study of the historical background of Dubai, its beginnings, the current state of the city and the structures in place, and then look at the future projects. In the second part, it will study the situation behind the scenes, which include all the critiques addressed to the leaders of the project, including the social and environmental ones.
Located on the shores of the Persian Gulf, Dubai is both a city and one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates. Founded in 1833, the emirate and the city are becoming more important by participating in the creation of the Trucial States in 1853 and today the UAE in 1971.Dubai has always been the place of trade, this dynamic and its location making it a natural port that allowed it to emerge as the leading financial center in the Middle East. With a rapid development which will be discussed later, it has also become the first tourist destination in the UAE and its business centers now compete with those of the modern World.
