The world has some amazing architectures, some of them can compete with each other for being the tallest building. Countries these days compete with each other by their tallest skyscraper with majestic design. Here are 22 top tallest building in the world at the moment.

For nearly half a century, from 1931 through 1972, the 1,454-foot Empire State Building held the title for being the tallest building in the world.

The world has come a long way since then — in the rankings of today's tallest man-made structures, the Empire State Buildingdoesn't even crack the top 45.

We ranked the 22 tallest buildings in the world right now using data from The Skyscraper Center, a database maintained by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

The world's current tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, soars 2,716 into the sky, and more and more skyscrapers across Asia and the Middle East are rising each year. Six of the top 10 tallest buildings are in China.

The only US skyscraper that made the list is One World Trade Center in New York City, which stands at 1,776 feet.

A few of the buildings on the list, including the Goldin Finance 117 in Tianjin, China, and the Suzhou International Financial Square in Suzhou, are still under construction but have reached their full height.
