10 Incredible Modernist Houses in Dubai

The future is here

Written By Amina Kaabi

Over the last few years, Dubai has become synonymous with modernity. In a matter of decades, the city has become renowned for its immense, eye watering skyscrapers, man-made islands, and its gargantuan glass shopping malls—marking the city’s architectural development as nothing short of impressive.
