Ranking criteria and its alternatives

Emporis ranks the buildings by highest architectural structural element, which means:[1] Emporis is a real estate data company with headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. ...

  • height of spire, statues (or any other architecturally integral element) count towards the height of the building
  • height of antenna, flagpole (or other detail not classified as architecturally integral element) does not count towards the height of the building
  • roof height is only relevant if no higher architecturally integral element is present

This naturally hurts the rankings of buildings without spires, or with antennas instead of spires. The most famous such discrepancy is that Malaysian Petronas Towers (with spire on top) is ranked higher than the US Sears Tower (with antenna on top) despite having lower roof and lower highest point (of spire/antenna).

Alternative lists of high buildings are maintained by nongovernmental US organization Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

Currently Taipei 101 tops all categories except highest point, where the Sears Tower is highest. The Council on Tall buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) was founded at Lehigh University in 1969. ...

Alternative measurements

Height to Roof

Many skyscraper aficionados prefer height to roof to determine tallest building in the world, as "architectural feature" is regarded as a subjective and less fair measure.

Height to Pinnacle

Some skyscraper enthusiasts prefer this measurement, claiming that the extensions that can or cannot be deemed "architectural" are subjective. However, many non-architectural extensions (such as radio antennas) are easily added and removed from tall buildings without significantly changing the style and design of the building, which is seen as a significant part of the value of these buildings. Also, measurement (to the top of the highest architectural detail) has been the one traditionally used for decades for this and other reasons; the pinnacle category has only recently come into use, starting during the construction of the Petronas Towers.


This measure is the value listed in lists of air traffic obstacles and similar lists. An Air traffic obstacle is a tall structure which can endanger air traffic. ...
