Tallest building, not structure.

In Singapore we have 3 towers tied at the same height of 280m due to height restrictions:

LOL re: "get with the times". BMO circa 1975. Q1 circa 2005. I'll see if I can do the arithmetic.

BTW, we're not totally immune to spires (boy there's a great a great chest-thumping architectural argument you got there). We have the rather ugly Trump, Brookfield and others. And the world's tallest thingamabob for more than three decades is pretty much a spire, no?

Nice try but you can do better if you put some thought into it.

In Norway, the tallest "traditional" building is the Oslo Plaza, at 135 metres.



However, there actually is one building that's taller: Haldentårnet in Halden. It's a factory tower, so it's not very widely known. This is the only picture I've found about it:


(Nexans.no)

Norway isn't exactly the prime country for tall buildings. We do have a couple of tall bridges, though. The pillars supporting the bridge across Hardangerfjorden are 210 metres tall. And if you look offshore, there's the mighty Troll platform, which was the biggest in the world when built in 1995. At 472 metres, it was once the tallest structure in Northern Europe, and is the biggest structure ever moved by man:





Probably doesn't qualify as a building, though. Still cool nonetheless.

Is that the so called Platform "Beryl Alpha"? Saw a Nat Geo-documentary a couple of years ago about the largest oil platforms around the world and they also mentioned a platform (Beryl Alpha) which was casted during its transport and by that making it the largest thing ever to be moved by men. The information may not be entirely correct, but that's what I remember of it.

^Nope, as far as I've seen it has always been named Troll A. Wikipedia mentions that it's the tallest structure ever moved by man, but weighing more than 680,000 tons without ballast, I guess it is also the heaviest. No Google Search has come up with anything bigger. I guess the only close contender would be the largest supertanker ever constructed, Seawise Giant, which has a displacement of 646 000 tons.
