WHAT TO DO IN DUBAI: VISIT BURJ KHALIFA THE HIGHEST BUILDING IN THE WORLD
THE BURJ KHALIFA STRUCTURE IN DUBAI
Construction of the Burj Khalifa took place over a five-year period, from 2004 to 2009. It has a skeleton made of reinforced concrete and recycled steel from the demolition of the former Berlin republic palace. It was demolished in 2008. The cladding, on the other hand, is made up of over 26,000 glass and aluminum panels. This coating also contributes to the energy performance of the skyscraper. The solar panels that surround the building in fact therefore constitute the main source of energy for heating the water inside the building’s hydraulic system. The creator of the construction project of the Burj Khalifa is undoubtedly the architect Adrian Smith, who has already signed other impressive skyscrapers such as the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai or the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago. Unlike these two, however, the Burj Khalifa consists of a very particular shape of the base, which then models the entire building. This is in contrast to the more classic rectangular or circular skyscrapers. Adrian Smith has in fact decided to design the structure of the Dubai skyscraper inspired by the lines of a local flower. Do you know which one? well the Burj Khalifa,, takes its peculiar three-branch shape from the structure of the petals of the Hymenocallis flower (hymenocallis).

In fact, there are several inquiries on the condition of the workers who contributed to making the Burj Khalifa reach its 829 meters in height. In fact, the project workers, mostly workers coming mainly from India and Pakistan, have suffered heavy exploitation with wages below € 5 per hour.

Furthermore, the apartments that housed these workers have often been described as unlivable places and the labor camps turn into overcrowded and neglected conditions according to a survey carried out by the BBC..
