There are the same random black dots on the latest cladding as we have already seen on the spire long ago. Could it be an extended lighting sheme with random light spots?

Some of you may remember this.
Burj Dubai lighting scheme tests back in November. Hopefully it could turn out something like this.

The simpler the lighting the better this building would look.

Hi all.

- Do you really think they are going to go with a simple lighting scheme ?
The festival lighting list has hundreds of lights in it. They could have revised it but I doubt it - I'm sure it will look great when done.

Nice update Imre - Thanks.

Paul - your BD project is looking good now. The setbacks and level heights look spot on. Just over 50 concrete levels left - the setbacks get more interesting now and into the steel.
Great work.

Thanks Fury. Finished the concrete. I don't even want to look at the steel tonight! Maybe tomorrow, maybe next weekend.

Magical doors? Sorry, not sure what you're referring to?

(Stunning modeling by the way - great job!)

Are you planning to put each and every beam in position? That would be really awesome. Great work so far!

Those men sitting around the fountain would get wet at some point if unlucky.
