This is interesting, thanks for posting

It looks like the top strength buildings on this list use what has been referenced earlier in this thread as "uneconomic concrete" - concrete which can be manufactured, but isn't cost efficient. Otherwise I can't imagine why concrete with this strength wouldn't be used in the tallest and skinniest buildings of our age

In some of the pics above (by alsaif2012), it looks like some sort of giant structure being built on a uninhabited planet, quite sci-fi-like, and I'm enjoying witnessing it rise.

The "TC 1" signed crane standing near the core seems to be break down.
I think they replace it for a new construction phase.


I think the two red "Wolffkran" cranes were dismantled for the same reason.

It's amazing how much our world has evolved in the architecture! The length of these buildings are just outrageous and stunning!

They might have been posted already but I have not seen the three above images.
