16263Longest fort wallsKumbhalgarh Fort22.4 mile(s)India, RajasthanFifteenth century ADThe longest walls around a fort or castle are the 22.4-mile walls at Kumbhalgarh Fort, a Mewar defensive construction in Rajasthan, western India. Built during the 15th century by Rana Kumbha, this long wall is around 5 m thick and contains seven gateways. Some historical sources report that eight horses could run on top of the wall, side-by-side. The wall divided the competing Mewar and Marwar kingdoms, and the fort within was used by the Mewar rulers of Mewar as a last refuge. The fortress fell into enemy hands just once, and then only because the drinking water had run out. Besides the fortress, the walls also contain many Jainist temples plus 60 Hindu temples, totalling around 360 in number. Visiting tourists are warned to take special care – although the many ancient defence mechanisms and traps have mostly been disabled, some are still assumed to exist in more remote parts of the wall.n/a

16278First artificial fog buildingBlur BuildingFirst firstSwitzerland, Lake NeuchatelThe first building engineered predominantly from an artificial fog is the Blur Building designed by architects Diller + Scofidio for the Swiss National Exposition in Yverdon-Les-Bains, Switzerland, in 2002. A suspended 60 x 100 x 20 steel platform over Lake Neuchatel is permanently enclosed in a giant cloud. The highly precise water spraying is carried out by 31,400 high-pressure and high-grade steel jets with tiny apertures just 120 microns in diameter, through which lake water is forced at 80-bar pressure onto fine needlepoints and atomised into tiny droplets 4–10 microns across – small enough that most are suspended in the air as fog or "blur". The project cost $7.5 million. Up to 400 visitors can enter this fabricated fog, where they hear only the white noise of water nozzles, with computers precisely adjusting the spray strength according to the different climactic conditions. The fog mass constantly changes, producing long fog trails in high winds, rolling outwards at cooler temperatures, and moving up or down.In addition, visitors wear "brain coat" weather gear, which provides bodily protection and stores personality data for the building’s computer network. Using tracking and location technologies, each visitor's position is identified and their character profile compared to other visitors.
