This Is What The Iconic Buildings Of The World Look Like When Up Against The Burj Khalifa

3 1 1

So we know that the Burj Khalifa is a lot of things, the world's tallest building (for now), and its been called Dubai's very own Eiffel Tower. However, there are other iconic buildings around the world like The Empire State Building or The Shard in London, not to mention the Burj Al Arab. 

A group of architects have put together a proposal to superimpose the silhouettes of the other buildings against the Burj Khalifa, and it looks amazing. Judging by these photos we home that their proposal is accepted. 

In recently times we have seen a lot more happening with the Burj Khalifa, so perhaps this is the next stunning spectacle. 

'In an homage to humanity's courageous building heritage, we proposed for the Burj to put on a shiny white skin and display in real height scale the silhouettes of iconic architectural feats from around the world. The silhouettes would scroll slowly giving the viewer for the first time the chance to see the real difference in height between selected world famous constructions in comparison to the massive 828m height of Burj Khalifa'.
