What the heck is amazing 'bout that shot?


It seems some people smoulder in a state of hypnosis when they get to see anything from Do-Buy. Creepy.

Spires are only added for architectural design considerations and to gain height to make the building taller than it really is. They really are at all a consideration for any type of weather.

Maybe it's amaizing to see if you're there something that's 740 meters up on the air, but what you'll know.


... plus the only one in a state of a creepy hypnosis here are you. Can't even "spell" right.

Nice shots Imre! It's funny to see how 300m supertalls look like highrises next to Burj Dubai.

Damn you, Altin
Do you see any need to quote every single bland shot over and over again and comment it with soaring flights of intellect such as "Wow!!!111, !!great/amazing!!, : drool:, : cheers:,..." or whatever? Do you enjoy reading such crap?

I think it's highly annoying. It's not like I'd come here to mock users, but you have to scroll through hundreds of pages to get any information with all those loads of spam. Is that what an architecture/skyscraper forum is all about?

New Year Fireworks at Burj

Around this time last year, there were rumours about setting the Guiness book of world records with a fireworks display around Burj Dubai on New Year's eve. Is that still the case?

Hmmmm, the latest pictures of that spire (on the previous page) bring a whole new meaning to what a waste of money. Its appearance ain't friendly either.

what are u talking about ? the facade is not even fully complete, so its going to give that un friendly look, just like the concrete section when there was no facade on it. and how is it a waste of money ? its not like its a huge actual spire. the spire on the Durj Dubai brings a whole new meaning of a spire.
