Nowadays, it is almost impossible to visit the world's largest cities without being towered over by skyscrapers. From London to Dubai, several countries are in constant competition to earn the esteemed title of the world's tallest building. As of 2018, there are 56 buildings on the list for world's tallest, with 27 (48%) of them situated in China - in order to earn a place on the list, a building has to reach a minimum of 350 meters.

Holding the title of world's tallest building can benefit a country in several ways such as increasing tourism, creating additional revenue and brining an overall sense of achievement, so it's unsurprising that some of the world's wealthiest countries are spending millions each year on constructing what they hope will be the next tallest. Currently, the tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa located in Dubai, who have held onto the title since 2010.

Considering the enormity of these monumental landmarks, could you begin to imagine what was actually required to construct them? How much did they cost? Why were certain materials and construction methods used? Created by Abbey Pynford, who supply raft foundations, this infographic will answer all of the questions you've ever had about some of the world's tallest buildings.
