Architecture Wow Worthy

In an email with the subject “Metaphors for Capitalism - Illustration #1,” Matt Sussman “presented me with a beautiful present” (if I may borrow a few words from a standard translation of the Old Testament):
BLOODTHIRSTY shark fights in one of the world’s biggest aquariums are threatening the opening celebrations of a new Dubai shopping centre.
Razor-toothed Sand Tiger sharks have killed at least 40 smaller reef sharks and have been aggressive towards divers working on final preparations in the giant tank.
The ten million-litre aquarium features the world’s largest school of sharks and is the centrepiece of the new 5.9million sq ft Burj Dubai Mall.
Here the truth makes an appearance not on the limits but at the very center of a place that has done its best to banish all truth (the exploitation, the greed, the waste, the cruelty), a place that’s a total fabrication.
