Majestic, awe-inspiring and unique -- these are the words that best describe the 100 fabulously tall buildings selected for this superb new book. They embody almost seven decades of engineering and architectural excellence, and each one is a landmark signature on the skyline of its city. From the 1930s splendor of New York City's Chrysler and Empire State Building to the dizzying heights of Kuala Lumpur's Petronas Towers (the world's tallest), each is a lasting monument to the ingenuity and courage of its builders. This spectacular book includes a table that ranks the buildings by height, a summary and glossary of terms.
