The week ahead


Thanks to the beneficence of Paula Knights at Winning Moves, Foresight has 35 packs of the Skyscraper edition in the 'Top Trumps' series to give away in our end of year quiz. Select the highest value on the card's spec list - height, floors, building completion date, elevators, floor space and climbing difficulty being the options - to trump your opponent and win all the cards.

Each card in the dandy pack has a picture of the structure along with lots of additional facts and information. What more could the civil engineer at play want?

All you have to do is provide Foresight with the answers to the four questions opposite by 31 December and be among the first 35 entries drawn from the winning pool.

That's assuming enough of you get the right answers, of course.

In the event of any argy bargy, Foresight's decision is final.

Oooh, cheeky and masterful all in a couple of sentences. Timing and the vagaries of the postal system mean that the winners will get their wares early in the new year - sorry about that, folks.

1. How many elevators has the Burj al Arab Hotel in Dubai, Saudi Arabia?

2. How many floors have the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?

3. How many metres high is Tokyo City Hall in Japan?

4. In what year was the John Hancock Centre in Chicago, USA, completed?
