    Taipei City Xinyi District with the magnificent giant bamboo pagoda like Taipei 101 in between day and night.

    "Taipei is a remarkable city and I never thought I would end up living in there for several months. Before coming to Taipei, I knew about the city only because of the Taipei 101, the giant of the Taipei skyline. In my opinion Taipei 101 is the most beautiful skyscraper in the world and also the most technically challenging one. Its postmodernist architectural style resembles a bamboo stick with 8 (standing for wealth and success) pagoda-like sections. Curled ruyi figures in industrial metal in each section of the facade are a representation of an ancient talisman associated in art with heavenly clouds (symbol of contentment and satisfaction). The Taipei 101 stands in a typhoon region and only around a few hundred meters from a geological fault line. These two factors require it to be flexible and stiff at the same time. There are 16 steel columns in the core and 8 steel super-columns at the perimeter. All columns are filled with concrete up to floor 62 and there are altogether 5 kinds of steel specifically designed to suit its purpose and position in the building. Moreover, there is a 660 metric ton (1/10 of 1% of Taipei 101 total mass) tuned mass damper near the top floors to offset movements caused by strong winds. The total mass of the building is more or less equal to the total mass of the soil excavated underneath it. The piles fixing the building to the ground go up to 80 meters underneath the ground through clay-rich soil to bedrock."
