Sleeping Giants: 12 Sky-High Abandoned Buildings

Sleeping Giants: 12 Sky-High Abandoned Buildings: "Bangkok’s skeletal ghosts of prosperity past aren’t the only super-tall structures left vacant for decades on end to deteriorate until they’re either heroically saved or razed to the ground. These 12 abandonments are among the tallest in the world and many bear historical significance for their respective cities, from San Francisco to Rio de Janeiro.
