Good to see the crane operator. Sometimes we lose sight of who the humans are behind these mega projects.

haha i am feeling the exact same way.. every time i check this site and see this in the under construction forum i think to myself, "nah there is no way".. but these latest images have proven that this thing is actually happening. what an absurd and amazing building.

Luminous ceilings and walls

In 2010 Light-Tech installed the world’s largest luminous ceiling at the „UNIQA-Tower“ in Vienna (Sofitel) created by the famous architect Jean Nouvel. The ceiling was designed by the famous Swiss artist PipilottiRist. The tailor-made solution of this major challenge was the starting pointfor luminous ceiling projects around the world. Meanwhile, Light-Tech has developed several light ceiling systems for different requirements indoor and outdoor and currently designs illuminated ceilings at the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, which will become the world's tallest building upon its completionin 2017-2018.

Now its official! The only good thing in this tower is its height! The rest especially those cheap hideous luminous ceilings makes me feel sorry for it! Unless its a Halloween prank! Please let it be a Halloween Prank
