Preservation: ‘Falcon City of Wonders’

‘Falcon City of Wonders’ is a major construction project in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. It is an approximately 7 square-kilometer large urban development which main characteristic are reproductions of the seven wonders of the ancient world, as well as the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal. Construction has started in 2008, however, the financial crisis of 2008 has paused the project. If the project is ever finished - will it make the people want to see the original monuments or does it reduces the value of the real?
