Half Way to Heaven
Only half completed, five years in the making, and already a monolith. Burj Dubai is a rising Star in the annals of architecture. Due to be the new tallest building in the world. Dubai City is the new Paris, the new London, and the new Hong Kong. make no mistake Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, president and prime minister of the UEA (United Arab Emirates) and ruler of Dubai is hellbent on making Dubai the new world center, and not doing a half bad job at it.
What I do know is that this building is stunning. I triumph of humanity, as much as the rest of Dubai City. I want to be there, opening day. Perhaps have a winter flat somewhere on the 300th floor. Yeah... that sounds nice.
