  24. This building is amazing. I saw a documentary about it once talking about the "dampener" they have to protect against earthquakes and typhoons. The dampener is essentially a 12 ton ball of steel that acts like a pendulum and is installed somewhere near the top of the tower.

    It looks awesome too!.

  25. Phwoar, that's a sexy building. Trust the arabs to out do everyone, though.

  26. Wicked building. I love that it has a cool style and doesn't look all super lame like most new buildings. I believe that pendulum dampener is at the bottom of the tower.
