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.

If the above video from National Geographic doesn’t work, try this partial clip of the episode from youtube:

Burj Khalifa, Dubai became the tallest building in the world in 2010, however, most of the Dubai skyscraper is still unoccupied. So the Tai Pei 101, with 70% estimated occupancy, might be the tallest sustainable skyscraper in the world.
