I like the doubled mechanical cladding a lot more than the regular one...

True. you've got to respect the Israelis even if they commit abuses. Otherwise you're an antisemite and can be banned for life.

topic time


jews, arabs, falun-gong or simply californians, who cares, has nothing to do with the spectacular time in history of architecture that the burjdubai represents and is completely irrellivent to the steel frenzy we are about to go into
no hard feelings though!

Just wanted to ask if someone possessed of some plans of the steel part besides one taken from the Samsung video. I am so hyped out about the fact that we are in the beginning of the steel "era" and would be deeply thankfull and happy if someone had something for me to post here, even if it is out dated or just a rough plan, I wanna see the the way of thinking on this scale

thanx in advance (name no names)

Took some updates today but forgot the camera in the car and I'm feeling to lazzy to go down in the basement and take it.

I must admit that this is a huge tower and big development, but honestly I don't see the significance of this tower or any tower in Dubai. The city is basically a desert that wants attention, so it uses oil money to build large towers that, in my opinion, will basically be fairly empty most of the time. Burj Dubai doesn't show economic growth the way some towers such as WFC in Shanghai or Freedom Tower in New York. I just don't get why people are so hyped about a really tall piece of glass which has, really, no meaning.

Thank you for your opinion, now you can go in the waterfront, take a look up at the back and remember the old times when it had some meanings.

Yes, the lift who will send me to the parking in the basement, is some 20 - 30 meters from my door, and going to the car down there it will be less then 10 meters more.

BTW it is 1:06 AM in the morning overhere.
