The 10 Best Skyscrapers in the World

With New York’s One World Trade Center set to open later this year, attention is focused on skyscrapers. “They are spectacular. They are larger than life. They are charismatic, and you can’t help but notice them,” says Judith Dupre, author of Skyscrapers: A History of the World’s Most Extraordinary Buildings. Her 18-inch-tall skyscraper-shaped book offers a peek at some of the newest buildings near completion. Here she lists ten of her favorite contemporary towers.

  1. One World Trade Center (New York)
  2. Mode Gakuen Tower (Tokyo)
  3. Shanghai Tower (Shanghai)
  4. International Commerce Centre (Hong Kong)
