Mile high Kingdom Tower planned for Saudi Arabia will be world's tallest building.

The Saudi Royal family has unveiled plans to construct the world's tallest building, Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia, said to be one mile high.

This astonishing skyscraper is set to become the world’s tallest building – and it really will stick out a mile.

Plans were unveiled yesterday for Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia which will be exactly one mile high.

It will have 275 floors and be twice the height of Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is currently the world’s tallest building.

Kingdom Tower is expected to cost £12billion to construct and it will take 12 minutes to reach the top in a lift.

Members of the Saudi royal family unveiled the proposals showing that the megastructure will include hotels, offices apartments and a shopping centre.

The tower will have 12 million cubic square feet of interior space – 12 times more than Canary Wharf in East London. And it will be five times higher than the Shard of Glass in South London which will be Britain’s tallest building when completed next year.

Kingdom Tower will be financed by the Saudi royal family-owned Kingdom Holding Company which is chaired by Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal and is the nation’s largest company.

The project has been criticised by Rory Olcayto, deputy editor of The Architects’ Journal, who said: “The race to build the highest skyscraper is quite futile – where do you stop?

“These buildings are a symbol of an old-fashioned way of thinking.”

Most people blowing bubbles at the same time attempt to Guinness world record

Most people blowing bubbles at the same time attempt to Guinness world record 2011

VENTNOR, N.J. - From an elementary school in New Jersey to an autism center in Australia, thousands of people lined up with plastic wands and bottles of soapy water Friday, sending millions of bubbles skyward in an attempt to break the world record for the most people blowing bubbles simultaneously in multiple locations.

The effort marked the second attempt by the mother of an autistic child to break the Guinness world record to raise awareness for autism.

Isabelle Mosca of Ventnor had volunteers in 114 locations across the country, and as far away as Australia, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. They aimed to break the record of 34,529 set in 198 locations in England in 2007.

"People I'm never going to meet are blowing bubbles all around the world because they care, and that is so touching to me," Mosca said.

"We sometimes explain autism to people by imagining you're in a classroom and having an aquarium on your head," she said. "All these colorful fish are swimming around your head and past your eyes, and you're seeing all this and you're still expected to assimilate and behave and be appropriate. We should celebrate these kids."

When he was in preschool, her son Kyle had trouble interacting with his classmates, and during the often sleepless nights, his mom wracked her brain trying to come up with activities that he could share with them. One night, it hit her: Kyle loves blowing bubbles. She soon learned that other autistic children have a similar fascination with bubbles, and Kyle's school agreed to hold events each year for autism centered on a bubble theme.

Kyle is now 13, and he helped lead one of the events at the Ventnor school just outside Atlantic City.

"This is great. Great!" he exclaimed as more than 1,000 students ringed the athletic field and blew bubbles into a stiff wind that whisked them skyward.

"We have a perfect day for them to go all up to the sky," his mother said. "All our wishes are going to be heard now."

Mosca got thousands to participate last year, but people at many events failed to properly document their participation as required by Guinness World Records Ltd. This time she took no chances, with detailed paperwork required, signatures checked, and deadlines enforced. The attempt was synchronized across multiple time zones so that everyone was blowing bubbles at the same time.

The supporting documentation will be sent to Guinness. It will be several weeks before organizers know if they surpassed the total and whether Guinness will validate their attempt.

In nearby Atlantic City, hundreds of casino workers stopped what they were doing for a few minutes to take part in the event, including 100 on the Boardwalk outside Resorts Casino Hotel, 79 in a fourth-floor ballroom at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, and a combined 441 at Caesars, Bally's Harrah's, and the Showboat Casino Hotel.
