Earth from Above

Photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand will bring his work back to the United States – to New York City for the first time in 2009. Aiming to inspire people to think globally about sustainable living, Arthus-Bertrand has been photographing unique views of our planet, seen from the sky, since 1994 – and has produced an exhibit of over 150 4-ft. by 6-ft. prints which will be on display in New York City at the World Financial Center Plaza and along the Battery Park City Esplanade from May 1, 2009 to June 28, 2009. When completed in New York City, the Earth From Above exhibit will also move on to California in 2010. Photographs and captions all courtesy of Yann Arthus-Bertrand

1 km Building

1 km Building in Dubai

It will be more than 1km high, have 150 lifts and will take over 10 years to construct, say the developers of what could become the world’s tallest building.

Designs for the ambitious Nakheel Tower

The Islamic design-inspired Nakheel Tower will be the centre piece of a multi-billion pound inner-city harbour development in Dubai.

Its makers claim it will be so tall that the tower will experience five different microclimatic conditions above its height.

And high speed shuttle lifts will mean people will be able to see the sunset twice – from the bottom and again from the top of the building.

Nakheel – the company that created man-made islands in the shapes of a palm tree and the world – is behind the build.

Its chief executive officer, Christopher O’Donnell, cautiously told a news conference: “From our perspective, we are building a tower that’s going to be over 1km in height.

“This is a complete iconic development. It may be the tallest. Someone may build something taller.”

But “tallest building” claims are notoriously difficult to make. Debates about what counts as a candidate include whether buildings under construction should be considered and whether roof-top antennas count.

What is certain is that the tower will climb above the current holder of the “world’s tallest building” position – the Emirate’s own Burj Dubai.

Asked if the firm was worried about embarking on such a development during a global financial crisis, Mr O’Donnell said: “It was always going to be a project that would take 10 years-plus.

“When you go about trying to fund a project like this, you have to take account of the economic cycles.”

The company would not comment on how much the tower will cost to build.
