That may be true Copy, though it'd be awesome to see them open IRL. But then again, when have we drawn and designed awesome things on paper that have to get chucked in the real world due to time, budget, overzealousness, or audacity? I'm sure plenty of ideas get tossed, trimmed down, or changed in about a million ways.

Not an architect here but did see that process while in studio plenty. If you're lucky, the developer or person needing your service is rich enough to move forward with whatever you have designed but it seems like so much in the way of art or aesthetics is tossed aside for budget in the real world.

I disagree on this point, because temperature tend to drop with altitude and taken BK observatory as an example, which I was on many times, I noticed how much cooler and fresher the wind is on higher floors which is very logical.

Since this new tower observation decks will be very close to 1000m, I would say climate up there will be at least 6 degrees Celsius cooler than ground level and with reduced humidity levels it will make the felt temperature even lower. My guess is maybe they will be using these openings to help the air to circulate in all habitable floors of this tower hence helping the cooling of it and reducing its expenses as well.

Very interesting point but I doubt it applies on such humongous record breaking projects. This might happen to 100% freestanding towers but I doubt it will happen here since all they got to showoff is these few floors on top of this tower .. in a sense this tower's only job is too look beautiful and iconic so it attracts other businesses and investors to the area. My prediction is that we will see more unique features added to this tower during its construction.

But then again, there is an architect, which IS SUPPOSED TO come up with a viable idea that is equivalent to, or better than the initial surreal fantasy obtained by a heavily brainstormed mind that just got too high.

I don't know what it takes for them to foresee it, but it seems to be so simple - let them just install a rotating jalousie system, that may have a simple automated relay control. The best solution ever? Maybe not, but it took seconds to come up with. If brainstormed for minutes, could give a lot better result.

My only concern is construction I can't wait for this tower to start traveling upwards. I wonder how construction will work my guess is that there will be one main core and pump rising with an elevator and stair shaft in the center, and since floors don't start until 700 meters or so high this tower will most likely rise super fast.

Calatrava ??? ...most of the building had build Calatrava, have a lot of serious problems.

It must be so, because he doesn't design them for a good usability. His designs are only about appearances, disregarding many of the usability concerns.

As written many times in the thread, there wont be an official height until the tower is officially Topped out or finished. This is because Emaar most likely want it to be the world's tallest tower and they got Competition from Kingdom tower in Jeddah at the moment and other competitors ain't totally unlikely neither.
