very great dubaiflo

but there is something strange !!!

sometimes this tower looks like very thin and other ones it seems 2 be wide, so what is the reason ? the camera lens , the capturing angle or what ?

Udated foto

Hey! first post! i love this building. I live in the sandy one next to it, so i decided to take an aerial view from my 20th floor balcony! hope you like it! Its CRAZY thin, but it is reli cheap cus its not made like other skyscraper methods. to reduce weight, as it is so thin, regular concrete pouring on every floor would inevitably lead to structural damage. There is a thin square concrete centre, surrounded by about 12 steel pylons, creating the overall shape of the building. It has survived some serious storms! I'm impressed! but its a year late says its completed on the website!

they probs changed the design of the spire as it was too complicated, and its alredi a year delayed. Quicker to build it this way.
