Engineering feat

NPR has photos of Taipei 101, new owner of the title world's tallest building, and of its huge tuned mass damper. The photos I've seen of the building haven't impressed me with its aesthetic qualities, but maybe it's just the lack of a skyline perspective.

Apparently the Freedom Tower, on the World Trade Center Site in New York, will surpass Taipei 101 upon its completion in 2009.
