Japanese civil & structural engineers surely have something amazing to show to the world. The newly constructed Tokyo Sky tree is the world's highest tower that stands 2080 feet tall and the engineers claim that the structure is completely earthquake free. The company behind the tower, Obayashi is the same company that recently announced that they're going to build 'Space Elevator' by the year 2050. Note that the crown of 'World's Tallest Man Made Structure' still lies with the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (2,720 ft.)
