Dubai Technosphere takes a page from Disney's playbook

The Technosphere is an eco-friendly building set to be built in Dubai. Shaped like a sphere, it's a solar powered design with minimal waste, with the whole thing meant to represent the state of the Earth's ecosystem. Oh, and it also looks just like Spaceship Earth at Disney's Epcot Center.

But hey, wait, isn't Dubai totally screwed, money-wise? I thought they stopped putting up insane buildings for no real reason because they were out of money? Maybe this one is what'll turn it all around for them.
