THE BURJ DUBAI TOWER: A KILOMETER BUILDING

The need to attract attention is ostensible from Egyptian times. Huge buildings for not go unnoticed, marketing strategies for people admire the greatness power, enormous statues that want to say:

- “You are tiny, I’m who have the power and I can squash you when I want”. It is a manner to demonstrate population that only the powerful is who has the power.

An example of this desire to attract attention is The Burj Dubai Tower, a way to tell the people that a new power is emerging in Orient. But, is necessary to have built a tower of almost one kilometre of high? I think in Wilson Kipketer who is world record in 800 metres with 1:41.11 and I imagine him going these distance but to the heaven.

I don’t want to imagine what must be work in the last floor of the building and less when the lift will be spoiled. Also when the business placed for example in the penultimate floor want to search new employees they must to do a medical control to know if they have scare to the heights and if they have suffered any time of vertigo.

If at least this building will serve to palliate the famine in the world, but the unique thing that this demonstrates is the clear difference that there is between poor and rich.

How many people could to eat with all the money that is invested in to build this mega structure? How many new helps could to be inverted to save people without housing? All is power ostentation.
