Burj Dubai (or Dubai Tower), the world’s tallest building at height of 818 meters and 160 floors, is to open on Monday. It is the height of the current highest skyscraper, Taipei 101 in Taiwan, with the Eiffel Tower perched on top.

The tower is so enormous that the air temperature at the top is up to 8 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) lower than at the base. If anyone ever hit upon the idea of opening a door at the top and a door at the bottom, as well as the airlocks in between, a storm would rush through the air-conditioned building that would destroy most everything in its wake, except perhaps the heavy marble tiles in the luxury apartments. The phenomenon is called the “chimney effect.“
