Babel in 21st Century

Nakheel Tower
Location: Dubai
Completion Year: 2020
Stories: 1,000-plus
Height: 3,281 ft.-plus

Came across an interest article in BusinessWeek today. I'm amazed by the aggressiveness of some businessmen on developing those hyper-skyscrapers all over the world, particularly those in China and Dubai, actually most of them are there. I just think that do we need to build buildings that higher up? Especially in countries or cities that have some much land? Then, it makes me think about the statement....'Just because we can do it, it doesn't mean we should!'.....That reminds me of.....BABEL!....Hmmmm........
