Electric Avenue: Mother nature lights up the world's tallest building in down town Dubai

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 5:02 PM on 11th April 2011

It's one of the world's most extraordinary man-made achievements and it was given a suitably spectacular light show - courtesy of Mother Nature.

The Burj Khalifa, which rises 2,716 feet out of the Dubai desert and is the tallest building in the world, was struck by fork lightning during a thunder storm on Sunday night.

With more than 160 levels, the Burj also holds the record for having the highest outdoor observation deck - on floor 124 - and the lift which travels the longest distance.

What's that plain black one with the patch of white cladding on the lower end? If they don't do anything more than just clad it in white, it could be very interesting in a minimalist way.

Come on guys, all empty spaces looks bland and boring. They're just walls, windows, floor and ceiling for (whatever you worship) sake. It's the furnishing that makes the difference.

The H.H.H.R. Tower has been renamed to Blue Tower. Insignia on the front facade changed as well.
