Russia tower is a building not a selfsupported tower, by the way RT is on hold.

i know Cul, but what is for example the Burj Dubai? Isn't it a TOWER anymore? When not what is it? A tall building and aren't tall building supposed to be called towers? I mean, tell me the differerence of the use of the word tower for a structure like the Tokyo Sky Tree and the Burj Dubai?! Both are TOWERS both are designed to be selfsupported! A treadttitle like "world's next tallest selfsupported communicationtower/TV Tower" could be a better chioce, or not? So as i mentioned in my post from last page, i think that the Burj Dubai is currently the world's tallest selfsupported TOWER, therfore the diagram on page 1 should also contain one TOWER that is taller than the Burj Dubai!


I hope you get my point Cul.

my idea of a tower is a structure built with a shaft and turret ,topped with mast. no floor after floor like a skyscraper.
on skyscraperpage. you click the "tower" tab and you will get a line up of telecommunications towers. if you click mast you will get masts.
same goes for skyscraper which are listed as ";highrise"
a tower is very different to a skyscraper. totally dif structures and engineering.
