Cul, something I never got:

Why did you leave out the NY Times tower and put in emirates crown when the first has an official height of over 300m and the 2nd does not. I know the NY Times tower has a massive spire but so does emirates crown

Great diagram, I like the fact that 4 of the worlds tallest structures under construction are located in latin america (three in panama, my country of origin), but actually you missed the Costanera Center with 300m height in Chile´s capital Santiago. Maybe you can add it to the next diagram. either way great update,

I think the reason he put the ones on that he did is because Teipei 101 is the current tallest to the architectural top and the Sears Tower is the current tallest to the antenna. But Petronas is no longer first in any category.

But in the diagram, appears the Emirates Crown in Dubai 296 mts, in Dubai there's a lot of monumental projects, and here in latin america there are very few, for this, I think Costanera Center, Chile (300mts) deserves to be in the diagram

It's my point of view, no pressure

very interesting!!! but you should put Petronas Twin Towers to compared other building. You also can put some huge projects in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia such as, Lot C,Avenue K, and Four Seasons Hotel.
