What are the diagonal parallell "bars" visible in the glass on this photo?
Reflection? Optical illusion?

Thats why I love steel based structures they go soring to the sky's much faster than concrete ones. LOL with the acception of Buji Dubai for a concrete based structure it's going up pretty damn fast.

Concrete to Steel Core

Anyone have more info on how they're managing to transition the core from concrete to steel? How will they manage the elevators - a sky lobby at the transition point where people need to switch elevators? I'd love to know more about how they're doing it!

Amazing building, amazing country, amazing people!
