World's Tallest Buildings: Malaysia, China, US

There are several ways that experts measure the tallest buildings.

In 1996, as a response to the dispute as to whether the Petronas Towers or the Sears Tower was taller, buildings were ranked in four categories: height of structural or architectural top; height of highest occupied floor; height to the top of roof; height to top of any part of the building, says Wikipedia.

Currently Taipei 101 tops all categories except highest point, where the Sears Tower is highest.
