The next "Tallest Skyscraper" is under construction in Dubai, UAE. The Burj Dubai will be at least 705 meters tall and could even be up to 950 meters tall. It will take around 800 million dollars to build with staff pouring in from every known country. (source: http://www.burjdubaiskyscraper.com/)
This is a very beautiful building. With every muscle, it stretches towards the stars. These pictures inspire my imagination and show a glimpse to how the designing of this building went. It must have taken an amazing amount of time and energy to design it. Chicago based architect firm, SOM, is designing the beast (http://www.som.com/). With a scheduled opening date of December 30, 2008 they are building very quickly (about seven days a floor).
