Tokyo Skytree the tallest tower

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.
