Within the smell of larger oil barrels and wells, how does it feel to see the world’s tallest tower with luxury painted and glass coated, Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building(skyscraper) which gained a lot of popularity for Dubai and also raised the standards.
It took about five whole years to complete the entire architecture of Burj Khalifa it is also called as Burj Dubai, the name Khalifa is to honor the president of United Arab Emirates Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nayhan and ruler of Dubai.
The purpose of architecture from the earliest possible days of human evolution is to develop the civilization and to look more modern and educated, Dubai used the trick of architecture to raise their standards in the world economy and to equalize themselves with the world-leading countries.
More than just an oil-producing country Dubai is also a place of tourism, the lavish and luxury lifestyle of Dubai is way more advanced than many countries in this world, the government itself planned to build the skyscraper (Burj Khalifa) for the development project downtown Dubai.
As Burj Khalifa is an experimental project so it has to be something which is never there before, the core architectural shape is central hexagon core with three wings, the design is derived from buildings like the great mosque of Samarra and the central design derived from Samsung tower 3 in South Korea, It is a mixture of cocktail design like Islamic architecture and futuristic architecture.
To impact the wider population of Islamic architecture, the core design follows the Islamic architecture, the Islamic architecture is a mixture of many architecture designs and evolved itself as an identity, every building designed from the Islamic architecture have a sense of religion and also spiritual essence, the spiral design of Burj Khalifa impacts the Islamic architecture style.
To create something new is to adapt for the growing trends and also should consider the future within, Burj also used the futuristic design philosophy which just make the people wow in their first sight, the futuristic architecture design composed of long dynamic lines and strong usage of concrete in a very soft manner.
When we look at Burj Khalifa: the tallest tower in the world may look like a bunch of glass which is perfectly designed and organized but when we look at it from an architect’s perspective, Burj Khalifa is made out of concrete, steel rebars, and curtain walls along with glasses.
The shape of the architecture is weird but modern at the same time, thanks to Adrian Smith for his clear visual and inspiration from the futuristic and Islamic architecture styles.
Purpose of the architecture:
Every architecture has a purpose to play like what a painting or literature does, it contains a theory or a philosophy to communicate, Burj Khalifa designed with the concept of creating a standard for Dubai in the international standards and it does create and gave Dubai a new view from the outer world’s perspective.
With more houses, hotels and luxury apartments and offices, Burj Khalifa itself is a living environment in the modern era, it stands as an identity of Dubai to date.
Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest tower and created for the purpose of raising their standard in the world economy, other than just the architectural philosophy and great design with a modern shape, Burj Khalifa is a wonder when we look.
