Dutch Design and Engineering - Part 3

Excuse me for being so 'proud to be Dutch' on this blog recently... but it's just great to see how companies from our little country are conquering the world with their great designs. For example: this is an award winning design for the 180 meters high Wheel of Dubai. The outer ring with panorama rooms needs only 30 minutes to go round, the inner circle - with 384 hotel rooms (24 capsules x 16 rooms) including swimming pools - rotates smoothly within 6 hours. Just imagine what that will be like! Designed by Royal Haskoning (Thanks to Giovanni in Dubai)
