looks like its taken from long time ago, the slender ness at the top isn't visible. Look like the stage when the steel work began.

You, however, I have no clue what you meant by this, hehe. I'm detecting hints of sarcasm but it would be unwarranted because I don't believe I have seen many other similar threads...

Nothing to dwell on, really, just wanted to clear that up.

Hi Library.

"The Architecture of Adrian Smith, SOM: Toward a Sustainable Future"

The book covers many structures. The section on the BD includes designing but some drawings are an earlier (705m. - ?) revision. A very good read with many excellent drawings throughout.

BTW standing by the lake and watching the test runnings of the fountains was such a great experience. Imagine when it will be all running

There are many threads about Burj Dubai, in several sections of the forum: Try Australia, The Netherlands, Italy, France, Poland, Latin America and others I might have forgot or am not aware of.
