Dubai's skyline may be "better" or more recognizable or taller than Atlanta's but it's still not that great IMO. Dubai's skyline just doesn't look right to me. The Burj Khalifa is way way way too tall and is disproportionate to the rest of the skyline to where it just looks creepy. And a lot of the buildings, despite stunning architecture, seem too "artsy". What ever happend to a few normal looking skyscrapers? Atlanta's skyline certainly has more character to it and doesn't look like a random collection of supertall flamboyantly designed buildings sitting around in a desert.

That's just me though.

Not that I'm a huge fan of skyscrapers but Dubai is far more interesting and sort of reminds me of Coruscant

Atlanta - nothing special is it, let's be honest!
