Taipei 101 - a record-breaking megastructure that defies nature; a building so huge with a design so innovative it has changed the conventions of construction forever. Taipei 101 has thrust Taipei into the international limelight, but has the sheer weight and size of the building changed the delicate geological makeup of this already earthquake-prone island forever?
