- [Narrator] The Burj Khalifa is currently
the tallest building in the world.
Today, we'll take a detailed look
at the shape of the building,
and what the different
floors are used for.

(digital whirring)
(upbeat music)
Alright, so a little geography.
Let's make sure we know where we're at.
Here's Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Towards the bottom of Asia,
is a country called the
United Arab Emirates.

The Burj Khalifa is here
in the city of Dubai.

It's right in the middle of busy downtown.
There's some roads, freeways,
surrounding buildings, and places to walk.
The Dubai Fountains,
which have spectacular shows,
and of course, the Dubai Shopping Mall.
The building was opened
in January of 2010.

The highest occupied floor is Level 160.
(elevator dinging)
Above this point is the spire.
The total height of the
building is 828 meters.

Let's compare it to a
few other tall buildings.

Here's the second and third
tallest buildings in the world.

And here's a few others
you might recognize.

The building has a unique shape.
If we look at the base of it,
you'll see that it has a Y
shape, almost like a flower.

It allows the wind to pass around it.
We certainly wouldn't want
the top of the building

to sway in the wind.
As the building extends upwards,
one of the three petals will
shrink in a rotating pattern.

So, this petal shrinks,
and then this one, and then this one.
This gives us a spiral effect
all the way to the top.

The building has three main entrances.
One for residents, one for
hotel, and one for offices.

Let's take a look at what each
of the floors are used for.

There are hotel suites.
Residential,
people buy and rent living
space on these floors.

Mechanical rooms to make sure
the building's working properly.
Sky Lobbies, you can
take elevators directly

to these floors.
Observatories for the public to see.
Office space for companies to rent.
There's even a restaurant
on the 122nd floor.

Broadcasting rooms, and
above here is the spire.

You'll need to use ladders
and the public generally

isn't allowed up here.
You'll find all the elevators
at the core of the building.

This building pushed elevator
technology to it's limits.

There's no elevator that
services every single floor.

(peaceful music)
To get to the highest floors,
you'll need to first take an elevator
to one the Sky Lobbies then
get on another elevator

to take you the rest of the way.
It's a long way up but
just in case you get bored,

there's a video screen
to keep you entertained.

Some of these are actually
double-deck elevators.

They are able to service
two floors at one time.

Let's take a look at
one of the hotel floors.

Once you get off the elevators,
you can go to any one of the
three wings to find your room.

The rooms vary in size
from a smaller one-bedroom

all the way up to a large
and spacious hotel suite

at the very end.
If you need a bit more of a view,
there are more hotel rooms
on the 38th and 39th floors.

As a tourist, you can ride the elevators
to the 124th or 125th floors.
If you wanna pay a little extra,
you can get into another
elevator and go all the up

to the 148th floor, I hope
you're not afraid of heights.

For now, the Burj Khalifa is
still the tallest building

in the world but this may
change in the coming years.

You know what they say about records,
they are always made to be broken.

few minutes with me today

and I will see you next time.
