BTW happy thanksgiving.

Totally agree. But regardless, it will be a hell of an achievement to build the first tower surpassing 1 KM in height!

Very informative and quite an incredible feat of engineering itself.

I think this has little to do with the kind of building we are getting. In China it is demand that drive's the building and it's design. The giant mass thing seems to be good for the middle East because they are building a trophy.
