Temasek Tower, Singapore (235m)




This tower is the tallest cylindrical building in the world.

And it has no columns supporting the tower at all!
Yup, NO COLUMNS!

Designed to resemble a stack of coins, it was built by the government to house various ministries and government bodies. Ownership of Temasek Tower has since been transferred to private hands.
