The winner for Dubai’s newest bridge was announced recently. Fxfowle drew its inspiration from the city’s rivers and near-by sand dunes. The result is an elegant arched bridge that as built will be worlds largest and tallest spanning (arch bridge).

So Dubai will add to it’s collection of tallest man-made objects. It already has the tallest building in world in Burj Dubai and Al Burj, which is targeted to be taller than Burj Dubai, has started construction. The race to be biggest and largest continues on – and it’s mostly one-sided.
