Let’s hope the Tower of Dubai doesn’t meet the same fate as the Tower of Babel.

The Burj Khalifah under construction. Joi

There are a lot of similarities between Dubai and the biblical city of Babel.

Last May, I described the Dubai / Babel connection, and put the call out for a “DuBabel” correspondent.

Now that Dubai is officially home to the tallest building in the world, the Babel analogy is especially creepy.

The Tower of Babel collapsed, after all. In the post 9/11 world, the idea of a collapsing sky-scraper is truly terrifying.

As Dubai celebrates the opening of the Burj Khalifah, the last thing anyone wants to think about is a disaster on the scale of 9/11. Voicing such a possibility is practically taboo.

But, with the Babel analogy already a point of discussion, the question must be aired:

Could the Burj Khalifah actually fall?

Or is the only Dubai collapse we need to worry about financial?

I’m curious to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment below!
