Taipei 101 Center

Taipei 101 is a landmark skyscraper located in Xinyi District, Taipei. The skyscraper was officially the tallest building until the opening of the Burj Khalifa on the 4th of January 2010.

Taipei 101 is designed to withstand the typhoon winds and earthquake tremors common in its area of the Asia-Pacific.

looking high up..

here..


and there..


I love this view the most..


side view..

Curled ruyi figures appear throughout the structure as a design motif. The ruyi is an ancient symbol associated with heavenly clouds. It connotes healing, protection and fulfilment. It appears in celebrations of the attainment of new career height. Each ruyi ornament on the exterior of the Taipei 101 tower stands at least 8 m (26 ft) tall.

We took a look behind the building and found this musical fountain..





mesmerized by the music..

  7. The shape of the Taipei 101 - tall and 'thin' - doesn't look like it can withstand earthquake.
