oh, i award winning documentary from around the world news 0. ah, hello, i'm emily ang window. how these, the top stories on al jazeera, the high court in london, has ruled that wiki lakes founded julian, his sons can be extradited to the united states. the 50 year old could now face trial in the us on charges including publishing and classified military documents. but a sanchez patent says he's been punished enough today. it's been almost a year since i stood outside court with our victory of the blocking of the extradition. for the past year and the past year, 2 years and

4:02 am
a very narrowly crafted decision. people here in the united states can send money to individuals in afghanistan, and they can do so through us banks, which then may be engaging with financial institutions controlled by the taliban, or the ha connie network for the express purpose of putting that cache in the hands of individuals inside afghanistan, the money can't be used for rod non profit organizations, humanitarian a, our charity, a groups for example. it also cannot be used to give to people who were trying to set up businesses. this is strictly to give people the ability to buy food and medicine to acquire of fuel to heat their homes as winter is closing in, in afghanistan. you, as president joe biden says he's very concerned about a supreme court decision to keep abortion cubs in texas. but by the hell,
4:03 am
the ruling that allows abortion providers to challenge the state law, which benz procedures after 6 weeks, the law buys the procedure at a time. when many women don't even know they pregnant. the ruling today is an attempt to undo it in terms of what's happening in texas city and around the country is an attempt to undo 50 years of precedent and as far as i'm concerned. and as far as our ministration concerned, a woman's right to make decisions about her own body is not. and so we continue to fight for the constitutional rights of all women. to make decisions about their own body without interference by some legislative group of people that think that they can replace their judgment with her protested men might have held a silence strike against the military rule in the asking of the democratically elected government. businesses were closed and straight. some markets deserted

4:05 am
ah, ours isn't a number of people living sounds. now exceed those living outside. when this milestone was reached in 2009 few people notice across the globe, cities are growing upwards and outwards at unprecedented speed. fundamentally changing the way we live and why this could be a golden age of architecture, or time of unrestrained commercial speculation. how our
4:06 am
well will look for generations to come is being decided daily and te, few of us are engaging with the debate in this supercharged world of instant communication, instant message, and instagram. we're too busy looking down. it's time for us to look up. ah, i spent over 12 years living in hotel rooms and is quite literally a suitcase you and your tooth brush. so the last time for reflection, all of the jobs i've done a pretty huge mega cities. ah.
4:07 am
or when you're in a city like that, you're surrounded by architecture for the minute you open your hotel when done, check out the view and you come into the room to the moment you wake up in the morning and walk out on the street, see the customer my day job involved working with journalists who had to come to grips with lots of new technology. so i kind of act as a human interface between this highly technical equipment and walk somebody's trying to achieve creatively. i kind of come to the phase where i said to myself, you know what russia is time that you re invest some of your own creativity and got something out of being in all these amazing places. i was always interested in composition and perspective. as far as i came out of studying on to college,
4:08 am
and i came across some time, that's what i don't know what they are like to try doing time lapse is a beautiful combination still, photography and filmmaking. time left shows the world in a state of alter reality. ah, because see how the world around you behaves and why you cannot see the naked eye. time lapse is like magic. i i ah,
4:09 am
all the places i've worked in recent years, nowhere has changed more rapidly than guitars capital a century ago. 12000 people to population is now over a 1000000 fueled by the oil and gas reserves. ah, if you look carefully, these bills, you will see the few are occupied. ah, despite the armies of foreign workers, labor, day and night to build more critics dismissed these newly minted gulf capital, as instance cities. ah, the inference being that they are mere facades for reflection of national wealth and pride in portrait from the west vanity projects for wealthy patrons and the overpaid foreign office
4:10 am
in a country where nationals make up just 15 percent of the population. these prejudices often reinforced for expense like me, by the fact that you seldom if ever meet to locals. ah, it took a friend of mine from london to introduce me to fatima a young battery architect who offered to show me the less visible side of tow. how's current development boom wanting? i've noticed harris versus building it. also building all of these buildings without anybody to move into that immediately different vision. building a brand image for the city, but it's also another patient for this population growth that we already see taking place. do you think people misunderstand what's going on in the gulf right now? definitely, it's very apparent that all they see is the sort of, i just sort of the crust of,
4:11 am
of the city trustworthy society. this misunderstanding is not entirely surprising. when i look at these cities, i find the hall to see beyond the tower. oh though doses, buildings might not compete with do buys, mega structures. they do truly. i nevertheless, as they are meant to, oh, it to me skyscrapers make little sense in the gulf. the economic justification is based solely on the price of land and there is no shortage of that here. amazing, i think you will. historically, people have lived in one or 2 story houses and judging by how am to the towers all that showing little information to change as like his host, the other than that i forgot about them as mac,
4:12 am
in the heart of the old town gives a sense of auto har looked like before the discovery of oil and gas. now it too, is marked for redevelopment. we select some british architect to then worked with selected cathartic tech. they teamed up, ah, to basically come up with proposal for the area for old down. these neighborhoods have long since been abandoned by their original owners in favor of a less congested suburbs becoming home to dough hawes migrant workers. how many years year year i told them about the not quite the year and a 40 at quite the time. okay. that's my is part of a group trying to document it so has passed before there's none of it left in a city less than a 100 years old? is it always obvious what should be preserved? oh my goodness. wow. why is this in for me? this is one of the houses that i like to refer to as an endangered house.
4:13 am
i think we're starting to lose big portions of the older parts of the city because of the plan development because of the fund urban regeneration project. and this is an example of a chance to rescue some of these building. do you remember this kind of architecture in these buildings as a small child last year? my great grandmother's house was very similar to this one. it was a courtyard house with rooms around the courtyards, the info, the way that you design now architect here and can fire tend to be very, very nose tells you about these different architectural elements that you find more about. the ornamentation, but i think there's much more to learn from a house like that, for example, the proportions of the one or the sort of colonies around the courtyard in order to get enough shape. things like that that we should extract as lessons that we can
4:14 am
use despite the improvement in doha circumstances, since the discovery of oil and gas, some things remain unchanged. the hot weather can make this an inhospitable environment. in climate change is only like you to make it more modern buildings cannot afford to ignore this project like michelle. this upcoming right now does so many architectural lessons that we can learn here, which we can call, sorry, contemporary which are, which we look traditional. however, they do respond to the context very, very well. i really respect the fact that it architect did not find the need to have another fully placed elevation. therefore, the building requires i have the same time the elevation together with the poetry that's engraved on it, gives the characters to the area to do you think there's
4:15 am
a common story that the region is trying to tell to the rest of the world with the resources that it got it hands on right now. they're trying to develop a solid basis to their system with being built. today's not just for me or for my younger brothers assistance, but it's for future generations to come. ah, wish arabs $900.00 homes offices and shops aimed to recreate the closeness communities of the 1950s at a cost of $5.00 and a half $1000000000.00. it's a substantial gamble on lowering people back from the suburbs or something the towers have failed to do. ah, the popularity of doha has recently rebuilt. soup shows that there is
4:16 am
a strong sense of nostalgia, the old town. i spend so much time here looking through my lens and buildings that it's easy to forget that this is all about people. a town perhaps because it's a nation built on immigration, understands clearly the competition for human resources. a competition not only with his fellow wealthy gulf states or the wider world. ah. that all precedents with to attract people, the competing city states, aubrey nay, sons, italy used their wealth to glorify thy cities with painting and sculpture to be successful, we sometimes have to 1st appear to be sent out
4:17 am
by depicts the human form remains controversial in this part of the world, the beautiful buildings suffer. no such drawback. i guess seen from this perspective because some vision is not to create an instance city, but an eternal one. 0. mood . london is on the face of it just such a metropolis. it became the 1st truly international city of the modern age more than 2 centuries ago. oh, but today it too is being radically redrawn. are the global economy neighborhoods that were once the home of the british elite are today 2nd homes for
4:18 am
the international super rich. creating a central call, which increasingly feels to me like a ghost town. at the same time, london is seeing record growth. its population jumping more than 800000 in 2013 the highest increase since world war 2. the residential property market also rose 20 percent in the 1st 6 months of 20. 14, driven to a large degree by foreign money across the city. new buildings are rising fundamentally reshaping the skyline. these changes have not been without controversy, but from a time lapse photographer's perspective, it is exhilarating
4:19 am
has been 6 long weeks in this hotel in 2012 for the summer olympics. and i say long weeks because to wake up every morning to a bowling. i been aching to photograph as for all that time, but knowing that working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, i simply wouldn't have the energy or the inclination to can. she asked to work and i made a mission in the back of my mind that wanda, i'd be back from hang. i was told to that as being this huge, huge building for me that she sits in the employment
4:20 am
the shod became europe's tallest building. as a photographer, to capture something new, something that the wells biggest, the world's tallest loved best is always part of the stories. well, the category own skyscraper has drawn a mixed reaction from the press. one commentator described it in graphic terms as having slashed the face of london forever. not because it defends pressures, sensibilities to have a foreign own building, dominating the skyline. that because of a perception that it changes the character of london. a straw poll of kmiec is down on london bridge suggests a sharp division in people's attitudes. what do you think about the shawn chard?
4:21 am
mm. i don't know. it's a bit bit of an eyesore to be honest with you. only one of the by finding you know, how to play with her according to the local council. only 11 residents, rotan. 2 objects to the sean. ah look over london from the 72nd floor viewing platform. it's hard to believe it was so few the only meaningful intervention was fine english heritage, the body task with preserving the country's historic science. ah, ah, each attracted to the effect this new landmark would have been an old one. and
4:22 am
poles cathedral. a $16000000.00 inquiry decided in the shop favor and it went ahead enthusiastically, supported by london's man. ah, for me, what makes this all the more significant is that it fits the vanguard of 236 tall buildings, said to transform london over the next decade. and there has been almost no public debate about this radical reshaping of the city. new london architecture, an organization who sponsors read like a who's who of the building industry has put together an exhibition, detailing exactly how london will know if all the proposed building go ahead. what opposition has been to these types of buildings will have been comments princeton
4:23 am
from some people that we don't want something night do by on the 10. i'm going to call it very different that we have a lot of historic buildings, and we need to insert new tool buildings into that historic environment should impose dictate london planning in the future. i think using some polls is guideline is a pretty good way of stopping buildings in particular historic areas. but i think we've also got to look at places where not just where we can't build to building a place is where we can because london is growing huge the at the moment with 8300000 people. and by 2050, we're going to be more like 13000000 so we will be a lot more housing, a lot more places to work more retail also things like that we need to do to meet that grave. and part of that is to build tool abilities, craig dead ovens and ah. ready
4:24 am
last time, london skyline was vis radically redrawn was during the cities bombing and ball to saint paul's famously survived as a symbol of national resistance or. ready its icon twice, i even belt on the ashes of the great fire of $1666.00 which bind a fad of a city to the ground. its architect, sir christopher ran, who knew a thing or 2 about building and longevity. right. architecture has its political views, established the nation, joyce, people and commerce, and makes the people not native country. architecture aims at eternity. ah, great cities need great buildings like to define themselves. i
4:25 am
suppose was a procedure fronted, skyscraper, old, but name. i tell you 100 meters and perched on top of that k tell. it was the tallest building in the capital until 1962 before the sixty's london was essentially a low rise city. 6 stories was in practice, the limits for both victorian fleming and the amount of stairs tenants declined before the invention of the elevator. so london spread out. no, i tell you the 1000 square meters urban sprawl is no longer according to the developers. the only way is the piano, the shot architect has described his building as a vertical $50.00,
4:26 am
with ken apartments, costing up to $80000000.00 each. it's unlikely to solve london housing shortly. and this is m i 6, which you know from movies to referral is part of a golden generation of british architecture. we've had a profound impact on the cities of the modern world. the will population is rising and rising and the phenomena rate. and most those will be overnights. so place making through cities, i'm being proud of your city and making recognizable architecture. i think it's happening all over the world and losses that does lead to mistakes and, and to inappropriate, tall buildings. there's a lot to be said for the toll building. the tall buildings of new york creates the busy pavement, the busy sidewalks. it's not just tall building, so it's density. and that's why you get such great shops, great sidewalks,
4:27 am
great restaurants. do you believe scientists are defined by the buildings around us? well, it's churchill is great curved old and then we build our buildings. now we make our building, then i'll buildings make house. cities can be organic by nature. should they be organic? i believe inevitably change in, ah, in city form and in architectural direction is essentially organic, above the sad cities, all the gracious work of art and their anonymous in a way that i am made collectively which is extraordinarily. i can see the argument for saying are building shapers, but i am unsure that we shape our buildings. it seems to me that money is now doing that. london needs to expand, but skyscrapers. i'm not the only alternative. they raise issues like no other
4:28 am
buildings. they shape our cities both visibly, and structurally, i think londoners have little idea of how much these buildings will affect them. less perhaps the reason i'm finding more questions than answers. ah, if you want to know about skyscrapers, there's one obvious destination by happy coincidence, a time lapse. paradise. ready m huh? oh, there's a lot more into al jazeera than t v with our website mobile app, social media, and podcast. al jazeera digital is a world award winning online content, and each week on portal will bring you the very best of it. they're trying to brighten the people to levy to go somewhere else. but the truth is that it got
4:29 am
nowhere else to go. so if you missed it online, catch up here with me. sandra got men on al jazeera, a palestinian social, and political campaigner. in iceland, she became the 1st woman he had to speak about human rights, or in, at american dutch business woman who's built a multi $1000000.00 business, but helps disadvantage young people in the netherlands. nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself all to see the world meets to are of women who become successful away from home. arabs abroad, the activist of the old trooper, all jersey. the latest news, as it breaks, governments in the region are using security forces to clamp down on protests. instead of protecting their countries against armed attacks with detailed coverage in the absence of any hard data on how widespread overland they all become variant is, scientists are urging caution from around the world. political observers argue his
