Work started on the Dubai Opera House in April 2013. The first photo was taken in January 2016, shortly before it was was completed in August of that year.
The second photo is the completed Opera House, taken from a different angle, as when I started photographing projects in Dubai, I had no idea how the rate that the City would be growing when we moved here just over 3 years ago.
You can see the rest of my Construction 'before and after' photos of Dubai and around the world and buildings of interest I've photographed below:
