So, can we think of Dubai with a fresh perspective, perhaps through Baudrillard’s assertion that “it is the empty space that should increase the symbolism in architecture?” Can we perceive Dubai as an object in empty space, a something that is not possible without its binary nothingness? Can we attribute the semiotic etymology of Dubaization to the symbolic nothingness of its desert and sea landscapes?
