Considering they’ve designed and built some of the world’s tallest buildings—including the John Hancock Center, Willis Tower, and Burj Khalifa—Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) was the perfect firm to tackle the upcoming Pertamina Energy Tower—the world’s first supertall tower for which energy is the number one design driver. Created for the Indonesian state-owned energy company and set to rise more than 1,640 feet above the city of Jakarta, this stunning new 99-story “beacon of energy” and skyline landmark will boast a performing arts and exhibition pavilion, a mosque, and a central energy plant.
