Οι πόλεις είναι ζωντανοί οργανισμοί, με το πέρασμα των χρόνων μεγαλώνουν και αναπτύσσονται. Αρχιτεκτονικά θαύματα, ουρανοξύστες και άλλα τεχνολογικά επιτεύγματα κάνουν τις πόλεις αγνώριστες! Χαρακτηριστικό παράδειγμα το Ντουμπάι, που μόλις δυο δεκαετίες πριν ήταν μια μη αναπτυγμένη πόλη και τώρα έχει μετατραπεί στο «ναό » της πολυτέλειας!
