Size Does Matter, At Least In The Tallest Building Debate

NPR- November 8, 2013

In the mid-1990s, the Sears Tower lost the title of the world’s tallest building to the Petronas Towers in Malaysia (which have since been surpassed by others). Wood says “the decision was made then to distinguish between architectural height and material height. And that got distilled down to spires versus antenna.”

Do you count antennas, or just count floors?
What counts is, “mine is bigger than yours.”
