They were built as a monument and a tomb for pharaoahs but this is off topic so could you plz explain what you meant with your previous post and stop giving me a pyramid quiz?

and to show how powerful they were as human gods, they made the pyramids tall so everyone could see how powerful they were. aka showing off that they have the biggest dicks, the exact same reason people now built the tallest buildings in the middle east

no.. not exclusive to Middle East but the whole world.. the exact same reason why Korea/China are building megatalls and the same reason too why some proposals emerged from the US claiming the next tallest.. the only difference is, Mid-East is where the money is.. they don't have to worry much about funding their crazy visions..

I thought they built it for the memories of the three kings, the three stars in the sky (named after the three kings) mirrors the position of the three pyramids...no? More astronomy is also involved.

Anyway, Sorry for Off topic comment, back to Kingdom Tower.

Kingdom Tower

Shooting up over 3,280 feet into the air, Kingdom Tower will be the world's first kilometer-high skyscraper-and it won't be anywhere near Chicago. The lakefront condo, hotel and office building is part of a massive development planned for the new Waterfront District in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Except China and the US are building their megatalls in high-density megacities, because they are very useful and maybe even cost-effective economically. Arab rulers are building them for showing off, there is plenty of empty space around Jeddah or Dubai to build smaller buildings that would be more cost-effective, leaving the money to be used on more useful things for the general population.

Excellent video! But I hope that near of the Kingdom Tower will be more interesting towers, not only "boxes".

Perhaps you don't know how a kingdom works? The Saudis can make their own decisions on what to do with their money. I consider their ambition and wealth a gift to architectural progress for architecture fans across the world.
