Yesterday the Tokyo Skytree opened to the public, this is the worlds tallest freestanding tower and the second tallest structure to the Burj khalifa in Dubai. Taking 4 years to complete its role involves being a broadcasting mast an observation tower and a resteraunt. The form of the building gives it both beauty and strength starting in a tripod form at the bottom eventually forming a cylindrical form. the white lattice work is lit up at night with LEDs, ensuring it leaves its mark on the tokyo skyline all of the time. at a cost of £321 million i think its money well spent.
