The City of Capitals (Russian: ????? ??????, tr.Gorod Stolits) is a mixed-use complex composed of two skyscrapers and an office building located on storyline 9 at the Moscow International Business Center in Moscow, Russia with a complete area of 288,680 square metres (3,107,300 sq ft). The two skyscrapers are named after both historical capitals of Russia: Moscow and Saint Petersburg. Construction of the complex began in 2005, with the office building completed in 2008 and both skyscrapers finished in 2009.
The Taipei 101 (Chinese: ??101; pinyin: Táib?i y? líng y?; stylized as TAIPEI 101), formerly called the Taipei World Financial Center (????????), is a supertall skyscraper designed by C.Y. Lee and C.P. Wang in Xinyi, Taipei, Taiwan. This building was officially classified as the world's tallest from its opening in 2004 before the 2010 completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. Its elevators, capable of traveling 60.6 km/h (37.7 mph) and used to transport passengers in the 5th to 89th floor in 37 seconds, set new records upon completion. In 2011 Taipei 101 received a Platinum rating under the LEED certification system to become the tallest and largest green building in the world. The arrangement regularly appears as an icon of Taipei in international media, and the Taipei 101 fireworks displays are a regular feature of New Year's Eve broadcasts. Taipei 101's postmodernist architectural design evokes traditional Asian aesthetics in a contemporary structure employing industrial substances. Its design incorporates numerous features that allow the construction to withstand the Pacific Ring of Fire's earthquakes as well as the region's tropical storms. The tower houses restaurants and offices as well as both indoor and outdoor observatories. The tower is adjoined with a multilevel shopping mall that has the world's largest ruyi symbol as an exterior feature. Taipei 101 is possessed by Taipei Financial Center Corporation. The skyscraper started on 31 December 2004 to celebrate New Year's Eve.Source: Wikipedia
