The Taipei 101 (台北101), formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, is a landmark supertall skyscraper designed by the Taiwanese architects Chu-Yuan Lee and Chung-Ping Wang in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan. The building was officially classified as the world's tallest in 2004, and remained such until the completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010. Spanning 101 stories above the ground at 508 metres (about 1667 feet), the building was designed as a symbol of technology's evolution fused with Asian tradition. The building features many pan-Chinese and Asian elements mixed with a postmodern style, and is designed to withstand typhoons and earthquakes common in Taiwan.
