MahaNakhon celebrated its completion and title as Thailand's tallest building last night by lighting up Bangkok’s business area with a majestic light show in the rush hour of Monday night.

 

MahaNakhon, located in Silom, stretches 315 meters into Bangkok’s sky. Labeling itself as a “luxury mixed-use tower,” its 77 floors hold such illustrious tenants as the Ritz-Carlton condominium, Bangkok EDITION Hotel, Dean & Deluca’s Thailand flagship store, VOGUE Lounge and internationally-recognized restaurants L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Morimoto. Their observation deck offers 360 degree scenic views of Bangkok, and will be open soon.

 

The unique shape of the tower began with adhering to a required setback line angling inward from the property line as elevation increases, requiring the top of MahaNakhon to be cut away on the east side. This planning requirement in part inspired the “pixelation” of the tower’s exterior, leaving an impressive 30 percent of the tower’s floor plates in cantilever. This required the perimeter columns to change positions at specific points throughout the height of the building with load transfers performed through a robust core and outrigger structural system.

"There is a distinction between measuring "highest" and "tallest." The highest mountain is determined by measuring a mountain's highest point above sea level. The tallest mountain is measured from base to summit. Using that measurement, Denali is taller than Mount Everest. Denali rises about 18,000 feet (5,500 meters) from its base, which is a greater vertical rise than Everest’s 12,000-foot rise (3,700 meters) from its base at 17,000 feet (5,200 meters)."

The tallest building in Tucson. Tucson has a lame downtown and skyline. Especially for a city larger than Atlanta GA. Wish they would build some tall ones!

 

But the city council has an anti-growth campaign going on. Don't know why... actually I do, but I'm not going to get into politics.

The Wiener Prater is a large public park in Vienna. If people talk about the Wiener Parter they often mean the "Wurstelprater". The so called "Wurstelprater" is the OLDEST amusement park in the world.

- 16 floors (I think), build by Ceausescu, in Mamaia, same that build the Palace of the Parliament. After the Pentagon, the Romanian parliament building is the second largest building in the world.

Pigeon Point Lighthouse is one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Pacific coast. The tower stands on a rocky promontory and has long been a landmark for ships approaching San Francisco Bay from the south. This headland, and hence the lighthouse, took its name from the ship Carrier Pigeon that wrecked here in 1853. During our visit to the coast, we decided to stop by Pescadero and visit the Pigeon Point lighthouse. The 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest lighthouses in America, has been guiding mariners since 1872.

Taken this morning behind the old Marden school. You can see the smoke and lights of nearby Guelph in the background. Very warm sky with a touch of fog. I was so busy looking at the big full moon in the west, I almost missed the sunrise in the east.

Reputed to be the tallest grain elevator in the world, Harvest States Cooperative CHS-1 is serviced by a pair of Lake Superior Terminal & Transfer EMD switchers. It always seemed to me that this wasn’t a place for a young mother to take a toddler for a walk.

"Tibetans look at a person who holds himself above others, believing he is better than others and knows more, and they say that person is like someone sitting on a mountain top: it is cold there, it is hard, and nothing will grow. But if the person puts himself in a lower position, then that person is like a fertile field." — Allan Wallace

Tallest Building in Shanghai

towering up towards the sky

The Burj Khalifa, known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration, is a megatall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the tallest structure in the world, standing at 829.8 m (2,722 ft).

The Y-shaped plan is designed for residential and hotel usage. A buttressed core structural system is used to support the height of the building, and the cladding system is designed to withstand Dubai's summer temperatures. It contains a total of 57 elevators and 8 escalators.

These Blue Gum Eucalyptus on the UC Berkeley campus are among the tallest in the world.

I am only one,

But still I am one.

I cannot do everything,

But still I can do something;

And because I cannot do everything

I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.

- Edward Everett Hale

Calling this tower one of the tallest buildings in the world had always struck me as protesting too much by half. It is not a building really.

Great Gray Owls are one of the most mysterious and sought-after bird residents of California, Oregon, and Washington. While their range extends across the boreal forest of the Northern Hemisphere, the southernmost populations in the world are in the Pacific Northwest, extending into the Sierra Nevada down to Fresno County. Despite high breeding concentrations in the Wallowa Mountains of Oregon, Great Grays are of conservation concern to wildlife managers in Oregon due to declines in the overall population and loss of habitat. They are also listed as a State Monitored species in Washington, and State Endangered in California. The Great Grey Owl is a very large owl, documented as the world's largest species of owl by length. This beautiful bird was photographed at the New WILD-life Photography exhibit at Lindsey Wildlife Experience.
