Taipei 101 lies in Taipei, Taiwan. It was the tallest building in the world (2004-2010) until the Burj in Dubai was completed and opened to the public in 2010. This structure towers over the rest of the city and it is strong enough to handle Taiwan's earthquakes and typhoons. The elevator can travel as fast as 41 feet a second.
