Tokyo Sky Tree - Soon to be surpassed by Vietnam's own copy. Trolololololololololol
Vietnam has no understanding of architectural copyright.

Remembering the Japanese architectural firm Nikken Sekkei of Tokyo Sky Tree. The architect also designed the 333m Tokyo Tower in 1958. The development was carried out by Tobu Tower Sky Tree and Tobu Railway at a cost of ¥65bn ($806m).The tower is located in Narihirabashi / Oshiage area, of the Sumida district in the capital city Tokyo. The Tokyo Sky Tree, in Japan, became the tallest free-standing structure in the world when it reached its final height of 634m in March 2011. It surpassed the former record holder, Canton Tower in China, which is 600m tall.

Tall buildings do well in earthquakes since their tall size and flexible nature allows the earthquake's energy to dissipate as it travels up the building. Medium-sized buildings have the hardest time - whole floors can be obliterated while the floors above and below remain unscathed because the energy goes up, comes back down and meets the next wave in the middle of the building.

Most of Japan's skyscrapers are built to withstand any major earthquakes. They have this weight shifter mechanism inside the building as well.
