This project is in a class of it's own when it comes to height.....nothing comes close.
Will be interesting to see how long it would take for the 1KM barrier to be broken for any scraper category.

I just get the idea that all these leaders are pretty smart. How old is this guy anyway? He does not seem like a slacker and I love that he drives his own car instead of getting chauffeured like most people think he would be. He seems to know how to live life.

Everyone is West educated. Al Abbar graduated from University Of Seattle. He recently returned for a a speach overthere and received some kind of award or maybe it was a second degree ... can't remember.

[QUOTE=Fury;16881884]Hi all.

Hey helghast - I don't have any actual tier 22 prints - but ...
Here is the start of tier 23. It shows the terrace or roof of tier 22. So this print is the shape of tier 22 not counting the start which has tier 21 terrace. If you get what I mean - tier 22 has 2 wings. Those wings are approx 6 meters deep and wide and the center circle ( the lower/internal/unseen from the exterior part of the pinnacle ) is 2.1 meters in diameter.

QUOTE]

Yes that is right, I have tier 22 as being exactly 6 metres wide.

Hi all

Here are some pics of the Burj Dubai Model I'm making, It has been made using AutoCAD. I have shown different views of it plus the plans of each tier and podium which will hopefully let people understand how the design works and also how it changes as it goes up. Looking at the model, 819 metres (including aircraft beacons) is a very nicely proportionate height, but it could be made higher I think without too much trouble.

Becouse building and completing the upper part is more important then loosing time doing something that not only doesn't help at all the overall progress of the tower but might even slow the work down by restricting access and material storagge.
