I think "Analemma Tower" is what you mean.

‘UAE’s artificial mountain’ not such a preposterous idea

It was an idea so extreme that it could have been published as an April Fool’s Day joke, albeit a month late.

The story that the UAE was looking at the possibility of building an artificial mountain in the desert to encourage more rain first surfaced in Arabian Business on May 1.

It was quickly picked up by western media, agog at the prospect of another spectacular construction first from the home of offshore palms and the world’s tallest building.

It’s a measure of the credibility capital amassed by the UAE’s extreme construction record that even The Wall Street Journal reported the story.

But if it was a spoof, like all good ones this one was laced with elements of truth. After widespread international coverage of the country’s cloud-seeding programme, everyone knew the UAE was going to great lengths to conjure up water from the sky.

I think we already have enough megatalls for at least another decade. No need to get all excited over this new natural phenomenon.

50 years from now could reach 1,170,000,000 skyscrapers could 48 mega tall
Supertall more than 27,000 in 2067 but now 2,574 with construction approvals and proposed also Hype tall may be five over 1,200 metre in 2067

While a part of me will be really disappointed, the rational part tells me that Dubai Creek Tower may well be the tallest tower ever built. I only say that because history seems to be saying that everything man made at some point reaches its peak.



So, it seems that the world has already built, for practical purposes the biggest aircraft, which now seems uneconomic and the world's largest ship - long since scrapped. So maybe mega talls too have their peak limit which might not be that far away. I hope not, but I am guessing that it will be a very long time before anything taller than 1300 metres is built.

Sure, I have no doubt that much taller buildings will be proposed but fantasy and economic reality are too very different things. Time will tell.

London, the World's Greatest City.......................................after Hobart.
