BTW, for some reason when I spoke about race on post 26132, I thought I was replying to 234sale, only now noticed that it was actually you, hence the "WTF is this guy talking about..." reaction part from your side

The first cladding that was made in Germany failed twice the tests and the contract was cancelled. The panels and cladding installed on the tower are from China/U.A.E.

Such a beautiful building. The architects really outdid themselves on this one. When so much uglyness is being thrown up elsewhere around the globe, I hope more structures like this one are put up to make us forget about the eyesores. P.S. I am so happy this sight has not been locked down, I never tire of looking at these marvelous photos. Thanks guys!

Does anybody know where i can find a big poster of the Burj Khalifa, or any Burj Khalifa related posters?

I searched all the big poster sites for a Burj Khalifa poster and i saw many great pictures here to make my own poster. But unfortunately the quality of the pictures where not good enough

Thanks in advance!

I've got a 2.3 gigapixel image that would look OK if printed out at about 25 metres high. That good enough for you?

That's look more like leanning something else ...

Last night there was this woman by the promenade walking, then she saw the building, aimed her stare to the top and just froze there for 5-6sec totally shocked. Never seen such strong reaction before
