How the world’s iconic buildings compare to the Burj Khalifa



The Burj Khalifa has been the world’s tallest building for quite some time, and will probably keep the title until The Tower is built at Dubai Creek. It’s easy to get a sense of the mammoth scructure just by trying to squeeze it into one photograph – seriously, go to the fountains and you’ll see crowds of tourists kneeling on the ground – but it’s not so easy to imagine its scale in comparison to other iconic buildings across the world.

… That is until now. Minus5 Architects and Studio Mr. White proposed to illumitate the Burj Khalifa with full-sized silhouettes of some of the world’s tallest and most famous skyscrapers. The designers say that this would show the Burj’s “position as the ‘big brother’ tallest building in the world.”
