For those afraid of heights, climbing to the top of a skyscraper can seem like a daunting endeavor. While there are many tall buildings in the world, there is one that stands above the rest. At 2,722 feet, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is currently the tallest building in the world. Artist André Larsen shows people what it would look like to fall from the extraordinary height.
Originally from Norway, but currently based in Dubai, Larsen piloted a drone from the top of the Burj Khalifa to the nearest ground. Watching the video is a surreal experience that makes you feel like you are on the journey down this impressive skyscraper. There are 163 stories in total, and Larsen takes the drone down as close as he can to most of them. It feels like you’re on a roller coaster.
As the drone flies past the building, you are also able to catch a glimpse of Dubai’s incredible cityscape, including a body of water and many other spectacular buildings. Larsen then corrects the drone’s course so that it skates over the nearby surroundings – bringing the spectacular ride to an end.
