Architect describes world's tallest building


The architect of the world's tallest building, Adrian Smith, has spoken to the BBC about the 828m (2716ft) high Dubai tower.

Known as the Burj Dubai during construction, the tower has been renamed after the leader of Dubai's oil-rich neighbour, Abu Dhabi.

Mr Smith told the BBC that the building "is as good a building as I could get".
