The world’s tallest green building is Taipei 101. It has two, indoor observatories and an outside observation deck on the 91st floor that provide 360-degree views of Taipei.
The neighborhood and sculptures in the park surrounding Taipei 101 are meant to support the tower’s feng shui, prevent positive energy from escaping and reinforce the idea that the tower is the world’s tallest sundial. The tower is meant to represent a stalk of bamboo reaching into the sky to connect heaven and earth.
The 101 floors represent adding one to the number 100, which is considered perfect and auspicious in Chinese culture. Perhaps most interesting of Taipei 101’s inhabitants is Summit 101, a secretive, exclusive VIP club purported to exist on the 101st floor of the tower. Despite widespread publicity and millions of visitors a year that come to see the tower, no one is really sure what goes on up there!
