The Burj Dubai is a monstrous building among gigantic buildings. Considering its behemoth nature, it makes perfect sense to have a giant book in the giant lobby of the giant building. The 15 foot tall logbook will document the design and construction of the Burj Dubai tower. Exclusive photos will be included in the book which will eventually be offered up at an auction.
Implications - Whoever wins the auction is going to need to have really tall ceilings! The Chairman of Emaar Properties, Mohamed Ali Alabbar says that "Burj Dubai is a singular project that illustrates the success of collective human endeavor." He also states that a project as grand as this only happens "once in a lifetime."
