54 Fantastic Towers

Going Sky-High, from the Twin Towers to Rotating Architecture

— September 1, 2009 — Eco

A tragedy like the incident with the Twin Towers reminds us how magnificent these structures are. It takes years of planning and years of building to create these beautiful towers that showcase design talent and economic power.

From different concept designs, to Eiffel Tower additions, here are 55 fantastic towers.
