TOKYO SKYTREE was opened in 2012. It reached its final height of 634 meters in March 18, 2011 becoming to world’s tallest tower. The design follows the concept of sori (concave curves) and mukuri (convex curves), a common theme found in Japanese traditional architecture. It adopted an earthquake resistance system known as Shimbashira-Seishin (center column vibration control), the same system used on Japan's famous five-story pagodas. Ajiro, the traditional bluish white color used on the tower, is referred to as "SKYTREE White". When looking up at the tower from below, one is sure to be overtaken by its significant size and presence.
