Caracas, Venezuela. Considered the world’s highest squatter building. More than 2,500 squatters live 28 stories up in the 45 story uncompleted skyscraper. Each inhabited floor has electricity, jury-rigged to the grid, and water is transported up from the ground floor. Few of the building’s terraces have guardrails. Even walls and windows are absent on many floors. Dozens of DirecTV satellite dishes dot the balconies. The tower commands some of the most stunning views of Caracas. It contains some of its worst squalor.
