Burj Khalifa

What's bigger than the Eiffel Tower? The Burj Khalifa in Dubai stands at a huge 829.8 metres, compared to 324 metres of the Eiffel Tower. The first structure to hold the record as the largest in the world was the Tower of Jericho. This stone monument held the record for the tallest man-madestructure for over 4000 years.

Is the Ultima Tower real? The Ultima Tower is a hypothetical supertall skyscraper, designed by American architect Eugene Tsui in 1991. With a total height of 3,218 metres (10,558 ft), the tower would be 2 miles tall, and comprise 500 stories if built. It is one of the tallest buildings/man-made structures ever-conceived.

Can you feel tall buildings sway? Yes, they do, mainly under the effect of wind. The amplitude and frequency of sway depends on height, slenderness and rigidity of the structure. In very tall buildings, say above 50 storeys, such sway may make people uncomfortable at low_frequencies.
