Amazing photos of Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai

What’s so cool about this is the mix of sensibilities. Here are all the vibes I see: Islamic tile a la Alhambra, vintage American game board, The Land of Oz, gaudy and gorgeous, torpedos and Dr. Suess, Trump’s Atlantic City Taj Mahal. Wow. What a whopping load of cross-cultural aesthetics. Can you top this?
