Worth a Wikipedia Stop!
Whenever I look something up in Wikipedia, I tend to go down a little rabbit hole. But I found the Burj Al Arab entry to be pretty interesting! I’m just into buildings and architecture, even though I really don’t know much about it at all…
Daily Photo – Another Sailing Design
Yesterday’s Sydney Opera House photo and today’s photo of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai have a lot in common. They are both inspired by things-nautical. The opera house is based on waves and this is based on a huge sail. There’s something else about this building that causes a lot of confusion with the scale of it. It’s absolutely massive and I believe it’s one of the tallest hotels in the world.
