The mood is grim at the Address Hotel in Downtown Dubai. Overlooking the iconic Burj Khalifa, the hotel has become a vantage point for viewing the spectacular dancing fountain that comes to life several times a day. But as we wait for the arrival of two of the UAE’s most senior government leaders, smiles are hard to come by and the music from the fountains is being drowned out by talk of a second global recession.
Wuhan, it appears, wants to put itself on the map with a scale-shattering, skyline icon like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which Smith designed while at the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

A paragon of modern architecture, the iconic ICARUS tower is currently soaring towards the sky to become the next “World’s Tallest Building”.
‘Spiderman’ has climbed the world’s tallest buildings without a harness or net, but now he has Dubai's Burj Khalifa in his sights. French climber Alain Robert, nick-named ‘Spiderman’ for his ability to climb tall buildings with his bare hands, is aiming to climb the record-breaking Burj Khalifa, Dubai's new 2,716 foot tower. “I already climbed five of the tallest buildings in the world.
