Damn you must be so proud. The skyline of my city is so flat that I already have a "false" sense of proudness over a 10 story building being constructed. But then there's your city, which gets the 1st 1km high building in the world. And then I feel like crap all of the sudden, but also proud as a human being for what our race is accomplishing.

At the height of 1 km temperature drops 10 degrees. Will it be used for cooling and ventilation of the building?

no! Actually thermal gradient is 6,5 degrees per kilometer and there is no sense to use air intake on the tip of KTs spire just for 6 degrees. Im sure they gonna use standart air cooling system but very powerfull to cool entire building.

Of course they allow beer. But you need to brew it yourself and not let the authorities catch you while doing so.

The difference of 6.5 degrees can produce enormous savings in energy.
The air at that height should be much cleaner. This can also reduce the cost of clearing the air from dust?

Problem is - you'd need a quite huge air intake at the top and even bigger (and heavier) fans and machinery to force the air down through the building. That requires loads of room - and structural resistance - near the top, where you don't really have that much of either.

No...the design for this building was fixed about 2.5 to 3 years ago. The diagram the other person posted is a more polished, if less revealing, copy of what I posted online years ago. It looks pretty much identical.

The "normal" floors end at the 126th, which is at 506m.
There's 30 floors worth of mechanical spaces above that.
Then there's the prince's penthouse (and terrace) on the 157th, which is at 630m.
There's about 4 floors more of mechanical space above that, ending at the '167th' floor at 670m.
Everything up to 962m is concrete and steel spire. There appears to be some access points at around the 800m level, but no indication of floors.
From 962 to the tip is all steel tubing.

Including the lower mechanical floors, a bit more than half the height of this building will be unoccupied most of the time.

If it is a tower, then the Burj Khalifa won't be the tallest structure, but it will still remain the tallest building :/
