architectural design of Taipei 101 in Taiwan
Taipei 101 was once the tallest building in the world until surpassed by Burj Khalifa in Dubai but still has the World’s fastest elevator. The double decker elevators zoom from the 5th floor to the 89th floor in an astounding 37 seconds! That’s right…37 seconds. Think maximum speed of 1,010 meters per minute/3,313 feet per minute, while atmospheric pressure regulatory systems avoid ears popping.
