It's even blue on the inside. The prettiest color of them all.




The Gothic was brilliant

Who can beat this Heavyweight?

Impressive buildings so far, but the World's tallest Building Burj Dubai located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates blows all the competition out of the water with its engineering and height (824.6m) as well as its beauty.

BD isn't beautiful- it's design is pretty basic and isn't revolutionary or anything. It was designed to be the tallest building on Earth- nothing else.

Lol I love when people are jealous of Dubai. I don't think it can be duplicated now. I bet you are the ones that concidered the WTC twin towers in NY to be beautiful... Why don't you read how it was built and how it is revolutionary instead of nagging over why your city can't build one. The architect is American. It is a stunning design. Something never done before!

Current records

* Tallest structure ever built: 818 m (2,684 ft) (previously Warsaw radio mast - 646.38 m (2,121 ft))

* Tallest freestanding structure: 818 m (2,684 ft) (previously CN Tower - 553.3 m (1,815 ft))
* Building with most floors: 160 (previously both 1 & 2 World Trade Center - 110)[21][3]
* World's highest elevator installation[22]
* Worlds fastest elevators at speed of 64 km/h (40 mph) or 18 m/s (59 ft/s)[22] (previously Taipei 101 – 16.83 m/s)
* Highest vertical concrete pumping (for a building): 601 m (1,972 ft) (previously Taipei 101 - 449.2 m (1,474 ft))
* Highest vertical concrete pumping (for any construction): 601 m (1,972 ft)[23] (previously Riva del Garda Hydroelectric Power Plant - 532 m (1,745 ft)[24])
* The first world's tallest structure in history to include residential space[1]
