The Willis Tower (formerly and informally: Sears Tower, its title until 2009) is a 110-story, 1,450-foot (442.1 m) skyscraper in Chicago. At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Center in New York City to become the tallest building in the world, a title that it held for nearly 25 years; it was also the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere for 41 years, before the new One World Trade Center surpassed it in 2013. While it held the title of'Tallest Office Building' before 2013, it dropped the title of'Tallest Man-Made Construction' after only 3 decades. The CN Tower in Toronto, which functions as a communications tower, took over the title in 1976.
The Willis Tower is considered a seminal accomplishment for engineer Fazlur Rahman Khan. It is currently the third-tallest construction in the USA and the Western hemisphere -- and the 23rd-tallest in the world.
Aspire Tower, also called The Torch Doha, is a 300-metre-tall (980 ft) skyscraper hotel located in the Aspire Zone complex in Doha, Qatar. Designed by architect Hadi Simaan and AREP and engineer Ove Arup and Partners, the tower served as the focal point for the 15th Asian Games hosted by Qatar in December 2006. The tower is currently the tallest structure and construction in Doha and Qatar, but it'll be surpassed by the Dubai Towers Doha and the Barwa Tower, when either project is completed. The tower has also been called Khalifa Sports Tower or Doha Olympic Tower.Source: Wikipedia
