Wtf?
That is sick! And I dare to bet that it is not technically possible. Whatever they do, it will sink in and sweep all of Dubai with it.

looks awesome! this is how i imagine the cities of the future
but build such a huge building directly on the water? if that works out?

I think it's cool that wind, solar and water energy is generated in the building. although how much energy can the water generate on a bathing beach?

Got oil you get stupid. Pure decadence.

But doesn’t mean that I don’t think the building is beautiful

I wouldn't say that like that. i think the building looks more like progress than decadence. and if the autonomous energy supply works halfway, then the project is trend-setting at all.

It would be interesting if the oil ran out and whether anything would stop there.

The energy supply is a great thing anyway, no question about it

It would be interesting whether they then have a sewer connection, because otherwise the Dubai Poop Snake will be even longer: http://www.crackajack.de/2011/12/07/dubais-poop-snake/
whaaas they don't even have a sewer?
ok, i'm taking that back with progress. if the basics are lacking, even a 2km high building doesn't help ...

I think they are in construction fever just for this case, IF the oil runs out. tourism and such.

why do you think the sheikhs build there how stupid as long as there is money?
so that something is there as soon as the oil is out, ned are really stupid, and the already increasing tourism gives you imho right

Dubai does not have an address system either.
