Hi Fury,

Of all the theories we've had to explain that clear glass to date this has to be the most believable and most realistic so far. It just feels right anyway..

So, when do I collect my prize??

I am great fan of Burj Duabi....but for a guess.....if Nakheel Harbour Tower would have built before BD then BD could get same popularity by architechture , height and sight...

I have a question, for Fury.

I am not sure if this question belongs in this forum.

There has been some international press regarding new fire regulations for high rises.

I wonder, if BD has any special features to combat potential fires on higher floors?
