Burj Khalifa Curtain Wall

Made up of approximately 28,000 flat panels, the Burj Khalifa’s curtain wall varies little in appearance from bottom to top. At the uppermost levels, the unitized panels were made narrower and taller than on lower floors, easing the installation process. The skyscraper’s “curved” façade serves two design purposes, dispersing both the Dubai sunlight and the desert wind.

The Burj Khalifa towers over Dubai.
