An icon in a concrete jungle

Among the iconic buildings in the world, Burj Al Arab still tops my list. It is not the luxury, which attracts me towards the building even thought the building, has become synonymous with luxury and wealth, but the sheer architectural message it gives out.

Photographing this iconic building, one can never go wrong. As one of my dear friend Sumesh Senan says, Burj you can take picture, any time, any angle and you get it right !!

This is what the architect Tom Wright has to say about the building:

“If you can draw a building with a few sweeps f the pen and everyone recognizes not only the structure but also associate it with a place on earth, you have gone a long way towards creating something iconic”
Yes, this is what he had done.. create an icon
