The windows on the Burj Dubai are highly reflective, so they wouldn't let much light through. the sun is shining through the uncladded part of the Burj Dubai.

Sorry to interupt the conversation - but I was just wondering if someone could notify me of the post number of the fish eye lense shot from the top of the Burj.

I'm not sure where it is again, consideriung there is somewhat 400 posts.
Cheers

Is there going to be anymore progress of the cladding apart from the mechanical floors? I haven't seen any, unless they're not cladding steel floors for a while, they're done for now. Is there any reason for them to hold back for cladding the steel floors?
