Gensler unveils massive expansion plans for southern Mecca


Well we know where all the oil money is being spent, after all there are an awful lot of hungary princes out there who need feeding, what better way than building load of hotels and then rip off the pilgrims all year round. Even the pagan arabs would be ashamed at this behaviour, never mind the pethetic designs. For Gensler, what architectural spiritual/heritage style was used in their urban design. The comment of "minimise solar gains and decreasing the need for air-conditioned environments" is a joke. It was the Urban organic features that made Makkah unique with its hidden courtyards and roshan balconies. welcome to Makkah commercial disney land.
