Taipei 101, TaiwanDownloadable Video - 2007
Taiwan, China's renegade province, wanted to make the world sit up and notice it-so it built the planet's tallest skyscraper, Taipei 101, in its capital city. An architectural meeting of East meets West, Taiwan's biggest global advertising board and symbol of achievement was a defiant gesture towards its neighboring superpower, and a calculated quest for Taiwanese commercial attention proving that in modern times, the super-tall building is more than just the corporation HQ of the past. But does having the tag of the tallest guarantee success? And why isn't there a host of other skyscrapers in this city like its competitor over the water, Shanghai?
