The Burj Dubai is simply the next level of evolution in skyscraper construction, not a completely different breed of skyscraper. There are no unique materials that make up the Burj. It is primarily build of concrete, steel, and glass. It is the way these materials come together that make it unique.

You are right that many may not appreciate the accomplishment that this building has made now, but people usually appreciate things only when they have become part of history.
You said it yourself, this makes Burj Dubai unique, to be able to do it using this materials was not an easy task, they took the existing knowledge and made some improvements, and for me that's innovative and new tech.

yay!!

Wow, I can't believe it is topped off!!
Congratulations to Dubai, Emmar, and Adrian Smith, the architect, and his engineering team as well.
Can't wait to see One Dubai start rising.
I also can't wait until I'm an engineer! I have been accepted into UC Engineering.
