Top 10 Tallest Buildings

 
Man-made construction continues to astound me, and being married to an engineer means we watch a lot of shows on engineering feats—bridges, towers, you name it.

Tall Buildings

With the worlds population increasing eventually we will run out of room for everyone unless we either colonise the moon and other planets or build buildings that are self contained cities.Not impossible we have the technologies now..imagine cities like New York or Hong Kong as one big building roof top parks and garden systems , ..We don't need them yet...but we will...These tall buildings now are the start of the super high rises.With every new discovery of better stronger alloys and concretes...the sky IS the limit.
