Shwedagon Pagoda (Rangoon, 6th century, 99 metres), one of the tallest structures in Asia until a few decades ago.



Then, a golden mystery upheaved itself on the horizon, a beautiful winking wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome nor Hindu temple-spire. It stood upon a green knoll, and below it were lines of warehouses, sheds, and mills. Under what new god, thought I, are we irrepressible English sitting now?

Rudyard Kipling, From Sea to Sea and Other Sketches, 1899.

Torre Asinelli and Torre Garisenda (Bologna, 12th century, 97 and 48 metres), two of the oldest skyscrapers still standing in Europe.



Surge nel chiaro inverno la fˇsca turrita Bologna,
e il colle sopra bianco di neve ride.

╚ l'ora soave che il sol morituro saluta
le torri e 'l tempio, divo Petronio, tuo;

le torri i cui merli tant'ala di secolo lambe,
e del solenne tempio la solitaria cima.

Il cielo in freddo fulgore adamÓntino brilla;
e l'aŰr come velo d'argento giace

su 'l f˛ro, lieve sfumando a torno le moli
che lev˛ cupe il braccio clipeato de gli avi.

GiosuŔ Carducci, Nella piazza di San Petronio, Odi barbare, 1877.

K÷lner Dom (Cologne, 19th century, 157 metres), the tallest building in the world between 1880 and 1890.



Copyright of the second photograph: M. Landsmann.

Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome,
Da spiegelt sich in den Well'n,
Mit seinem gro▀en Dome,
Das gro▀e, heilige C÷ln.

Heinrich Heine, XI (Lyrisches Intermezzo), Buch der Lieder, 1822-1823.

Among Detroit's Art Deco Towers... the 47 story Peobscot Building has all the "Gotham City"
recesses that make 1920s architecture interesting to look at...
