Deutsch: Diese Skizze zeigt die Bauwerkhöhe bis zur Spitze des höchsten Gebäudeteiles des jeweiligen Gebäudes. Wird vom Erdboden bis zum höchsten Punkt gemessen, so ist der Burj Khalifa das höchste Gebäude der Welt. Da jedoch die Antennen nicht als Teil der Bauwerkstruktur angesehen werden, ist das Willis Tower Gebäude kürzer als das Taipei 101. Hält man sich an die Gebäudehöhen-Messmethode bei der dekorative Elemente gezählt werden, nicht jedoch Antennen, so ist die Reihenfolge der höchsten Gebäude wie folgt: Burj Khalifa, Taipei 101, Petronas Towers und danach der Willis Tower gefolgt vom Empire State Building. Der Willis Tower hat die meisten Stockwerke (109 Stück) und ein höheres Dach als die Petronas Towers.
English: This diagram shows height to tip of the tallest structural elements in each building. If measured from the ground to the highest attached component, the Burj Khalifa is the tallest in the world, followed by the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), but as the antennas are not actually structural; they aren't considered part of the building, and the Willis Tower building itself is shorter than Taipei 101. Using the method of ranking heights which counts decorative spires but not antennas, the tallest towers go in order from Taipei 101, Petronas Towers, and then the Willis Tower. Willis Tower has the most floors at 110, and has a higher roof than the roof of the Petronas Towers or Shanghai World Financial Centre. Taipei 101 has the highest roof.
Français : Ce diagramme est une comparaison des hauteurs totales des éléments structurels de chacun des bâtiments présentés. Si on mesure la hauteur du niveau du sol au plus haut composant attaché, la Burj Khalifa est la plus haute du monde, suivi par la tour Willis. Mais les antennes ne sont pas considérées comme faisant partie intégrante du bâtiment, et la tour Willis sans son antenne est plus courte que Taipei 101. Les éléments de décorations sont pris en compte dans le classement du diagramme, mais pas les antennes.
