9. Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower (Tokyo, Japan)
At a whopping 204 meters tall (that’s over 650 feet for you Americans), this 50-story building was finished in October 2008. It was designed by the good sir Paul Noritaka Tange, who is now probably a rich man walking around Tokyo, pointing at the tower and going all “I designed that”. The building currently houses three separate educational institutes.
