It is the cladding panels that are made in China. The glass is sourced locally.

I suppose you already know, but the glass' ability to isolate is not a mere light/dark scale and the stuff you said. It's a combination of reflectiveness, layers and the materials ability to not lead heat. It's true that the darker glass absorbs more light initially, but ofcourse you are right about that other stuff.

The burj dubai cladding is so reflective so I'd persume that looking from the sky it'd look dark or perhaps sandy, but on a sunny day it'll always look light blue. Not to mention the night where it will look imposing and black

his grandad is an engineer on it and hes gone over to help.

ive seen pics of him in the buildign with other workers i cant find them though =S he probably has got loads of pics though i havent asked.

Some of the concrete being laid at level 150-155 looks as if there is going to be no room for anything except a broom closet between core and window panel.

I wonder if they will have rules about what you can place near windows, in case it makes "looking in" a disappointment (especially when the lights are on inside)

I have seen any number of skyscrapers made to look tacky because people use the windows as walls, especially putting filing cabinets up against them.

Maybe sounds funny to most of you, but father of modern skyscrapers is Bangladeshi architect and structural engineer Fazlur Khan.

So, respect.

P.S. Something interesting; Bangladesh has more population then Russia. Imagine 150 million people in country of Greece size...
So, Did he planned a skyscraper project for Bangladesh?

Yes, cute, but on second thought I feel for the poor woman...

Anyway, looks like they have completed the final core floorslab.

You know what that means, right? Steel will be coming VERY soon
