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.

Spoken like someone who has never been to the Armani Hotel or the Burj al Arab.

Every picture that I’ve seen of the Burj Al Arab (and let’s face it; there are a lot of them) is unquestionably hideous. Same goes for the Armani hotel, though I’ve not seen that many.
