This infographic provides a comprehensive visual exploration of the proposed changes in the CTBUH ranking criteria for skyscrapers, shifting from 'height to architectural top' to 'height to highest occupied floor.' The illustration details not only the proposed new standard but also analyses how this change would affect the rankings of the world's top skyscrapers, highlighting significant shifts such as the highest rises and the deepest drops in ranking positions.
