Are they going to paint those steel cylinders grey or black? Or will they leave them all of them white? It'd be interesting if they gave it a reflective coating. That'd look nice.

burj dubai is awesome and beautiful, but its basically a standard skyscraper, concrete rising in a very standard way. However this just looks so incredible compared to every other structure on the planet, i'm really enjoying watching this one get built
