Minecraft - Taipei 101 by MinecraftArchitect90 Minecraft - Taipei 101 by MinecraftArchitect90
My Minecraft build of Taipei 101, built by me with no editors used.
Scale is 1:3 of the real building because of the 256 block height limit.
As I progressed to the top, I ran out of space to build the spire properly, I had to redesign the base twice before building skyward.
Tower is built mainly of stained glass, quartz & iron blocks.

Info:

Taipei 101 is a landmark skyscraper standing in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei. This magnificent structure is a prime example of traditional Asian design & symbolism, infused with the modern age with advanced construction methods. The tower is currently the third tallest in the world, & the tallest building in Eastern Asia. The tower stands at a height of 509 meters, has a floor count of 101 including five basement floors.

Construction of Taipei 101 started in 1999 after a year of planning, the design demanding that the tower be of Asian architectural aesthetic. Structurally, the tower resembles a pagoda, a multi-tiered tower common to China & Japan, used to contain relics of the Buddha.  In addition, it had to be able to cope with strong winds & earthquakes which frequently take place in the south-east Asian region.

The tower features many restaurants & food courts,  offices, observatories, an art gallery, a shopping center, & super-fast internet connectivity. It's lifts are the fastest in the world, able to ascend at a speed of 60 kph. Also, it's tuned mass damper is the world's largest, being 18 feet in diameter supplimented by two smaller ones, help to minimise swaying in high winds.

Taipei 101 has also been designed to be energy efficient & with a low carbon footprint compared to other skyscrapers. This makes it one of the most sustainable buildings in the world due in large part to it's design & advanced technology.

After five years of work, the tower was completed in 2004, it offically opened on New Year's Eve that year with a spectacular fireworks display, & every year it still plays host to such displays of celebration.

Taipei 101 is an unmistakable symbol of a confident nation, one that embraces tradition & modernisation, & is a marvel of modern architecture.

When I see such awesome Minecraft structures, I feel like the things I build pale in comapison. I made a "Tower of Zot" almost all out of Oak wood and kept building it higher and higher until the game wouldn't allow me to place any more blocks.  But it's not as cool as your tower. Did you make it in creative mode?

I built this in Creative, yes, I had to 'sculpt"the tower to a level that I was satisfied with. And the ability to fly in Creative is a big help too.

This one took about three days despite a few design changes during construction. I like to think this ranks as one of my finest! :)

My friend told me about your work. It must of taken a lot of time.
It looks good. I end up doing my builds by myself cause my friends don't know how
I want stuff. I also fill areas in cause I don't want bats or mobs spawning randomly.

Hi,
Thank you for the feedback in relation to some of my work, and you're right, some have taken weeks to fit & finish since like yourself, all my builds are done by myself.
You have a good point in saying that filling in stuff prevents mobs taking over the place, thats a good thought. If Minecraft had the provisions for more opaque glass, then I'd happily deck them out without fear of damaging the aesthetic.

It isn't at the moment, but I might make it downloadable after I feel it's sufficiently cleaned up. There are some other things I need to do in addition to my latest project.
