The Book Brothers' original 1924 proposal for the Book Tower in Detroit, Michigan, was an 80-storey skyscraper that would have been 1000 feet tall--the tallest in the world at that time.



This design was eventually scaled back and turned into this:

Detroit's current tallest building is the Renaissance Center at 727 feet.

Palace of the soviets (450m). It would be just so crazy and ridiculous to build it with that huge Lenin statue on top. Tourists would piss their pants to see it, youth would laugh to death looking at it, remaining commies would cry near it etc.

Interesting. I didn't know that. Is there a render of what it was supposed to look like.

I know this thread is about the "best cancelled", but I'd like to remind you of this:



Maharishi Tower in São Paulo, 510m.
