  • Rising 101 storeys (509 metres) above its surrounding urban environment, Taipei 101 is currently the world's tallest building.

    Designed by CY Lee & Partners, it was opened in 2004 amid spectacular Chinese new year celebrations, and has become the international symbol of the country's economic prosperity.

    This book looks at the technology that made it possible to complete this super structure, such as the tuned mass damper located on the 88th floor that stabilises the structure during the region's frequent earthquakes.Includes technical information and data, chapters written by the architects and engineers who worked on the project, hundreds of colour photographs, plans and drawings.
