The Tallest Buildings in Asia throughout History, Visualized

Which is the tallest building in Asia? Is it in your country? How about Malaysia’s iconic Petronas Twin Towers?

A recent post by Halcyon Maps (they publish new maps and infographics every week) featured detailed charts showing the sequence of the tallest buildings in every continent; Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Oceania). The charts display the tallest buildings in each continent throughout the ancient and modern history.

Let’s take a look at the chart displaying the tallest buildings in Asia. Click on the image to enlarge.

The chart above shows the name and to-scale silhouette of each building, the years during which it was the tallest in Asia and the year of construction, unless it was constructed the same year as when it became the world’s tallest.

Structures that are not actual buildings are also featured in the chart for their cultural significance. The building tinted in red shows that it held the record for the world’s tallest building at least once during their existence.

The height figures displayed in the chart represent the pinnacle height of the building, and not the roof height.
