Tallest Buildings
Fri, 20th Jan, 2006 15:00

I recently found an entry in Wikipedia listing the tallest buildings in Adelaide and thought it would be a good idea to make a graph (which I've put here).  The graph compares the height of the 10 tallest buildings in Adelaide to height of the Eiffel Tower, the Washington Monument, the Great Pyramid of Giza and the 10 tallest buildings in the world. This page on skyscraperpage.com also has a list of the tallest buildings in Adelaide with illustrations for some of the buildings.  This thread on the skyscrapercity.com forum contains an image of what Adelaide would look like with a 750m tower (the Burj Dubai).

A list of the tallest buildings in Australia can be found here. A list of the tallest structures in the world can be found here.
