From hear this podcast: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=91212161 , answer these questions:
What issues arise with creating this anonymous, “typical” space, where you are not quite sure where in the world you are? Do you necessarily need to know? Should the Karachi Coast strive to be place specific? What are the environmental issues (positive and/or negative) associated with reclaiming land?
There seems to be a leap in development ideology insofar as Emaar is supporting high-end development on the Karachi Coast when basic resource needs have not been met. Is there a problem with a company doing such business in a place that lacks reliable electricity and clean drinking water and suffers terrible violence?
