The Cayan Tower in Dubai, United Arab Emirates is the tallest twisted building in the world, with a twist of 90 degrees.
The 306 metres (1,004 ft), 80 story skyscraper was known as Infinity Tower before its inauguration on June 10, 2013.
The Cayan is designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) architectural group and developed by Cayan Real Estate Investment and Development.
Skidmore, Owings and Merrill is also the designer of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, also in Dubai.
The construction of the skyscraper began in February 2006 but it was delayed after a major flood occurred at the foundation site when the wall that held back the Dubai Marina was breached on 7 February 2007, causing sand and water to flow to the site.
The project resumed construction in July 2008 and was completed in 2010.
Here are more photos of the Cayan Tower.
World’s most expensive motor-home had been on sale in Dubai.
It is like a private jet on wheels with master bedroom and all other luxury things.
It also has a ‘Sky Lounge’ at the top of the motor-home where you can sit on the sofa and enjoy the view around you.
Motor-home is a very interesting vehicle to travel in, where we could travel anywhere feeling like we are at home.
And this luxury motor-home is even more interesting …
There is a nice restaurant made of ice in Dubai called Dubai’s Chillout Cafe, which is the first “ice lounge” in the Middle East.
Even the chairs, tables and curtains in the restaurant are carved from ice.
It is -6 degree celsius in there and before you get in, you must wear thick and fluffy winter jackets.
I do hope that I could visit the restaurant 🙂
