Here at E&T Towers, we always like to end the week on a high (sorry, couldn’t resist it), so herewith an infographic depicting the planned world’s tallest skyscraper.
Engineers in the Saudi city of Jeddah have begun laying the foundations for the Kingdom Tower, which when finished will be over 1km tall. Marvellous.
We can’t help feeling all this “world’s tallest building” one-up-manship is the architectural expression of national penis envy, but ours is not to reason why. And is it just us, or are these world’s tallest buildings all starting to look the same? Slender and pointy, with a disturbing similarity to those it inspired, like Keira Knightley in a Klan hood.
