The world's second-tallest building features in latest Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the Merdeka 118 skyscraper in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Australian studio Fender Katsalidis has designed what is now the world's second-tallest building, standing at 678.9-metres-tall.

Located in downtown Kuala Lumpur, the 118-storey megatall skyscraper reached its full height with the completion of its pointed spire.

One reader said, "It looks like a trophy for the world's tallest skyscraper".
