Have you ever noticed that five of the seven wonders of the ancient world are buildings? Why is that? Well, if I had to guess I’d say it’s because people have been fascinated with architecture since the beginning of time. We always try to experiment and to build amazing things, to push the boundaries and to impress the world. Architecture is always progressing. So which are the structures that impress us today? It’s hard to pick but we managed to come up with a top.
1. Burj Al Arab.
This luxury hotel is located in Dubai and it’s the fourth tallest hotel in the world, measuring 321 meters. It’s known as the world’s only 7-star hotel and it was designed by architect Tom Wright of Atkins. The construction began in 1994 and the building was meant to resemble the sail of a dhow which is a type of Arabian vessel. The iconic building opened in December 1999.
