    The Design-History

    The design of Burj Khalifa is derived from patterning systems embodied

    in Islamic architecture The Y-shaped plan is ideal for residential and hotel usage, with the

    wings allowing maximum outward views and inward natural light

    The design architect, Adrian Smith, has said the triple-lobed footprint

    (base) of the building was inspired by the flowerHymenocallis!!

    During the design process, engineers rotated the building 120 degreesfrom its original layout to reduce stress from strong winds since it is very

    tall!
