They decided to build this building inverted underground. The big hole is just the start of the huge excavation process.

It turns out skyscrapers need a thing called a "foundation" on which they are built and, it turns out, a great way to build one is to first dig a "big hole." In this case that "big hole" will house the foundation for the building's core.

If my post came off sounding "condescending," that's because it was.

maybe we should just keep as a sarlaac pit and throw bad guys into it

how bad are the slave wages in dubai i wonder?
and how does that compare to our wages?

we could rate buildings on their effect on human suffering....
if the tallest buiding in the world doesnt help out the local economy
AND help the workers have a better life, then whats so great about it

no its way out of scale and a few buildings are even missing (340 on the park). I'd rather have accurate renders, then inaccurate ones.
