Top 5 thinnest Buildings in the world which will leave you Awestruck!

When it comes to Modern Architectural Marvels the Skyscrapers steal the show with their unbelievably thin Structure and Height. They not only showcase the unbelievable progress humans have achieved in Architecture but also, the courage and confidence that the structure will stand still in the most difficult situations. These kinds of structures are the need of the hour due to the shortage of space in cities and the population growing rapidly. Often they are referred to as 'Pencil Towers' as their height is at least 10 times their width.
