Burj Khalifa - the Opening Day

The location of the tallest construction on Earth returned to Middle East, the region of the legendary Tower of Babel. It's Burj Khalifa in Dubai, of 828 m. It is hosting the highest mosque in the world (600 m).

For me, the name of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe comes to mind: his design for the Friedrichstra├če skyscraper. It makes sense, after all: the genius of the German architect foresaw in 1919 what today is known as Post-Modernism.
