There is example of highly commercial, highly environmental and highly gratuitous form within Asia. How do you explain that fact? The quest for height in tall buildings is predominantly driven by ego and competition. The great height for the title of the world tallest, or the country tallest, is predominantly driven by ego and competition. Is there a practical limit of building height? At what height do you predict will stop the race for the highest building?

Socially, that is a whole different scenario, what height would people not want to go beyond in a regular capacity. Are you traveling to work every day? Or traveling home every day? If we set, if we suggested one, every project that came along would challenge it. They will be even higher in the Kingdom Tower.

What high do I predict will stop the race for the highest building? I think for sure we will see a mile high tower; maybe after a mile high people will start to relax a little, but a mile high tower has been a dream of humanity for a hundred years almost and I think we will see a mile high tower probably in the next 20 to 30 years.

Description

And so, being developed by the same company, by the same developers, so their strategy is to build the supertall building and get huge attention for it and that increases the price of the whole land in the development, not just that tower. Probably not, because it would have cost so much to build. They are not doing it for altruistic reasons. So they must be profitable, although it is quite a cloudy subject which no one ever, kind seems, able to talk about clearly, at least of all the developers.

The main agenda there seems to be a sculptural form. And then Asia is quite interesting because Asia has evidence of all the things I just mentioned.
