While Dubai’s underpaid workers live in misery, the city’s elite class keeps piling on architectural wonders one after another. This time they’ve built the world’s largest airport, dethroning the previous record holder, Beijing’s UFO-like Olympic Terminal. At 16.1 million square feet, Dubai’s International Airport is not only larger than all airports that have ever been built, but it’s also the most modern and luxurious. Featuring 97 escalators, 8 skytrains, 82 moving walkways, 157 lifts, and numerous bars and spas, the Emirate Terminal 3 has been launched on October 14th, to the greatest pleasure of Dubai’s rich and famous, I’m sure.
