101

The Giant

Taiwan’s tallest building and national landmark deflects sunlight on a chilly mid-December day at the end of 2014. Officially opened December 31, 2004, Taipei 101 was a world-beater for six years until she was dethroned in 2010.

“Daunting” is how I would describe standing in the shadow of Taipei 101. The engineering feat that made the construction of this giant possible cannot be overstated as it dwarfs all who dare enter its lair. Happy 10 years. Here’s to another 10.
