Even the world's worst economic crisis cannot dampen man's desire to dream big -- and build the tall, taller and maybe the tallest buildings. And there is little doubt that today's projects are getting bolder and bigger.

And if the world can recover soon enough from the vice-like grip of recession, then by year 2020, Taipei 1010 will not even be among the top 10 tallest buildings in the world and Burj Dubai will be the fourth tallest. But then it's a different story that we will talk about later.
