Hi all.

Great pics guys.

I have made version 4 of my Burj Dubai Plan. I added the spire sections for tiers 18 to 23, made some wording changes, and added a few prints. Minor changes but if anyone is interested go to http://www.burjdubaiskyscraper.com/ on the facts page to get it.

I highly recommend that everyone check out and support this site. It is bar none - the best source of pics and info on the Burj Dubai.

Really impressive. I'm really rather astonished that something like this can be built. Architecture today seems to have no limits, what with what's being built here and other places like Shanghai and the Bejing Olympic stadiums/arenas. Truely an amazing time.

As I was just looking at those pictures above I had a bit of an inner laugh when I used to read so often about when are they going to start putting on the glass/cladding, page after page, and here we are today. Again really impressive.
