This example is on the extremely interesting intersection of architecture, religion, and lifestyle. During the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, residents have to wait longer to break their fast because the sun doesn’t set for several minutes longer than on ground level. Dubai clerics have ruled that residents above the 80th floor should wait 2 additional minutes to break their Ramadan fast, and those above the 150th, 3 minutes.
