These are very impressive structures, but are very difficult to appreciate with the polygon and line colors chosen. Try republishing them with a light polygon color and a dark line color.

There is something strange. Each block of Taipei 101 is smaller at the bottom and bigger at the top. you can consult the flash in this page Taipei 101.
