It is also known as no man’s land. The territory situated south to the parallel 60 of the austral hemisphere is open to scientific exploration and any military activity is forbidden.

The name of the continent means “opposite to the Arctic”(in Greek, arktos means bear-the connection is not with polar bears, but with the constellations of Bears). Although in Antiquity, the geographers believed in the existence of a territory in the southern sees similar to the northern one, Antarctica was officially recognized in 1820, when a Russian expedition (Mikhail Lazarev si Faddey Faddeyevich Bellinsgauzen) laid eyes for the first time on the frozen continent.

Today, skyscrapers are an increasingly common sight where land is expensive, as in the centers of big cities, because they provide such a high ratio of rent able floor space per unit area of land. They are built not just for economy of space; like temples and palaces of the past, skyscrapers are considered symbols of a city’s economic power. Not only do they define the skyline, they help to define the city’s identity. Here are 6 examples of amazing ultra new super tall under construction towers.

This beautiful and crazy building is designed to resemble a blossoming flower, Greek architecture firm Petra  Architects recently submitted “Blossoming Dubai” to the Zaabeel Park Tall Emblem Structure Competition.
Main building access is on the ground floor and through the two symmetrical structures located on each side of the tower’s base. one of the structures houses the children’s library while providing (through skylights) an excellent view of the tower above. the children have the chance to use both the enclosed library as well as part of the park outside.  The conference rooms are located on the lower ground floor offering a more controlled environment. All this area is flooded with natural light from skylight-like holes on the ground above while framing views of the tower. The building’s cafeteria is located 135 meters above ground and provides a 360 degree view of dubai and the surrounding zaabeel park. there are also two staircases connecting the cafeteria level with the viewing platform above providing a connection between the two.
