Oh No… Doha enters Tallest Building Competition

Apparently there are plans afoot to build the world’s tallest tower somewhere in Doha, according to the ever reliable Gulf News.

This disappoints me. Qatar – as a whole – seems to have eschewed the worst Dubaian excesses of gaudy, puerile, envious games of one-upmanship. Here’s hoping this isn’t the harbinger of more hideous projects such as the Armani hotel in Dubai or the kitschest place on earth, the Burj Al Arab.
