Labelled or marked?

The only label is the Magic Cristal one mentioned earlier Frank, and there are no marks or numbers....not even on the buildings.
I have written to them to ask if they know what th building is and why it was made.
 
In the meantime Anne....thanks a bunch!!  I love the way you are saying 'Have a Mooch'!  There are thousands of them there....but I have made a start....with Germany and the Netherlands first!! ....Oh the d**ting will just have to wait!!

Rosie, the skyscraper site has a detiled Search facility (not too easily noticed) whih permits input of highest and lowest height parameters in metres.

So if you count the number of floors (sets of windows etc.) and take 4 or 5 metres as a likely height per floor, you could narrow down the search to just a few hundred.

Heh heh heh I thought you'd like that site, Rosie! It looks like a regular goldmine of skyscraper info!

Kev, well done with the search thingie... I saw there was one but was outfaced by having to know the heights... good idea to use a formula like you suggest. :)

With so many crunched together bits and a sailing ship I would look Dubai-wards

skyscraper site is neat but seems to be a LOT might not be there.... looking at Bangkok, mostly post 1990 but I was there pre 1990 and was stunned by many of the buildings I saw there. Could not match Dubai

Hong Kong and Dubai were one of my first thoughts as well.  Haven't seen anything like mine on the site you mentioned Anne,  but AliBaba have a site that make trophies in glass for large companies, so I am writing to them at the moment. I will let you know what they say... if they reply!
