Project Description

Burj Khalifa, in downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is the tallest building in the world. It’s double the size of the Willis Tower at 163 stories and contains more than 24,000 windows, as well as the longest elevator in the world. It was built by bundling structures of smaller size for strength, and a Y-shaped buttressed core prevents twisting in the wind.

Fun facts about the LEGO version at Brick by Brick:
·12 feet tall
·Design time: 45 hours
·Build time: 60 hours
·Number of bricks: 16,500
·This is the only model where Adam has used a mathematical expression to visualize the design.
