Boy Gets Wish of Dubai Tower Scale Model

Seven-year-old architecture fan, Chance Mitchell, had a wish for a replica of Saudi Arabia's Burj Dubai Tower. The U-T San Diego reported the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted his request with a "4-foot scale model of the Dubai Tower built especially for him by Minnesota-based Red Eye ARC, as well as autographed original drawings of the structure and a full-color photo book by architect Adrian Smith. But the day's highest point was the half-hour video Web chat with Smith himself."  Mitchell, who has an atrial septal defect said, "I just like tall buildings. They're so cool."
