March Trip - DUBAI - Part 15

THE BURJ KHALIFA - is the world's tallest tower and the centerpiece of the Gulf region`s most prestigious urban development to date. This architectural phenomenon is a global tourist magnet that skyrockets Dubai into the global limelight. Burj Khalifa radiates out in a series of ellipses from the sky breaking tower encompassing residential, commercial, hotel, entertainment, and the world largest shopping mall. The Old Town with its intimate streets and architectural detail creates a special ambience with the mystery of yesterdays Arabia. Old Town features every kind of restaurant from five-star dining to outdoor cafes overlooking parks and waterways. The builders invented a new structural system, called a buttressed core, which enabled the building's efficient and economic build out. The design for Burj Khalifa went through extensive wind tunnel testing, resulting in a building that resists high winds while minimizing vibration. Taking advantage of the height, SOM invented a "skysourcing" cooling system to maximize ambient air. It pulls cooler air from the top of the building (which is on average 7° C cooler than the ground) and forces it back down through the building to keep it cool
