[edit] Information

Taipei 101 is the world's tallest sky scraper. It's 508 metres of the most high-tech engineering and construction on the planet, mixing ancient values with cutting-edge technology and taking the heart of Taiwan into the future. Designing and building the world's tallest sky scraper was no easy task because here in Taipei, two of the most powerful forces of nature - earthquakes and typhoons - combine to make going super tall a super challenge. Using world-leading engineering and construction techniques, Taipei 101 not so much conquers nature but outsmarts it. The result is a man made marvel: a unique mega-structure of unprecedented size, shape, and technology, built to withstand the very worst that nature can dish out. And it's not just as a super structure where Taipei 101 pushes the boundaries. Taipei 101 is a benchmark of technological brilliance and innovation, a record-breaking megastructure that defies nature and puts the small island of Taiwan firmly amongst the giants of global industry.

Produced by Andrew Waterworth Narrated by David Kersten Directed by Mathew Tomaszewski Music by Don Richmond Edited by Tamara Finau-Moir 48 minutes, English, 2006
