Description

Facts about the image, Dubai Old Town

Like many European cities Dubai has a heritage and an historical architectural style and culture of which it is rightly proud all of which is preserved in a part of the city nestled between its modern and spectacular buildings. This image shows one of the main squares in the old town where many square wind towers can be seen which are very much a part of the functional architecture, these towers are traditionally connected to under floor tunnels and make use of the breeze blowing across this coastal city to keep buildings cool in the days before air-conditioning was not invented.

Also visible in the image is mosque with its minaret and domed roof partially obscured by two wind towers, the almost windowless walls of Bastakiah Nights Restaurant and a traditional Bedouin tent all of which give a very different impression of Dubai than the spectacular modern buildings so often shown in other media. The old town in Dubai is a conservation area where the traditional architecture of the region nestles in its little enclave as the glitzy high rise buildings go up in other parts of the city which are much better to known to prospective tourists as it is the new architecture that dominates the tourist brochures.
