The Tower of Babel, or rather Dubai

2010 began with the official opening of the world's tallest building (I can hear them weeping in Toronto). It got me pondering about the maximum theoretical height of a building. Would you believe a mile high? And that may not even be the max. A Frank Lloyd Wright design. The one thing he definitely got wrong; it's home is more likely to be Dubai or Abu Dhabi than Chicago.
