Burj al arab– This unique luxury hotel completed in 1999 is built on its own island in the shape of a dhow, a type of Arabian vessel. An interesting example of wind and water! It is the fourth tallest hotel in the world, although almost forty per cent of its total height is made up of non-occupiable space. Standing on an artificial island, it is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge.
In Feng Shui terms, this is a wood type building, which means that it receives a lot of support from its water environment.
