Burj Khalifa

Reaching for the stars

Burj Dubai (Tower of Dubai) was opened in 2010 and promptly renamed. Still the tallest man-made structure in the world, the skyscraper was named after the President of the United Arab Emirates and has been known since as Burj Khalifa. Reaching for the stars, the tower's architecture and engineering was performed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill of Chicago, with Adrian Smith as the chief architect. The skyscraper is 828 metres high. It took 12,000 workers over 5 years to build the colossus made of steel, reinforced concrete and glass. 57 lifts transport visitors through a minor climate zone because it is 8 degrees colder at the top than at the bottom. How many components, tons of steel or megawatts of energy went into constructing this giant of the desert is unknown – although some 20 tons of steel products did came from Sturm.
