Taipei 101, with 101 floors above ground and 5 floors underground, is the tallest building in the world from 2004 to 2010. Its chief designer is C. P. Wang, co-principal of the Taiwanese architectural firm C.Y. Lee & partners.
In this National Geographic “Megacities” documentary about the Taiwan skyscraper, Wang is shown with a white MacBook in his office.
