  1. World building of the year alright –
    I read an article 2ish years ago about a tall tower appartment block in an Asian city – sorry I can’t be more spacific – I have forgotten exactly where.

    The recent fire at the Torch Tower Building in Dubai – it is said that a small electrical fire went through the air delivery system.
