Rulers of Gulf countries have developed a strong interest in establishing and promoting new visions of their capital and major cities over the past few decades. In particular, the new vision to establish hubs in various economic sectors including trade, transit and tourism as well as culture and education have instigated a variety of mega projects and subsequently a diversity of place typologies. This paper explores newly emerging places and their networks rooted in distinctive hub visions, which have resulted in globalised urban spaces as nodal points within international networks.
