Located downtown in Santiago, Chile, is a peculiar cell phone-shaped skyscraper. It was built in 1992, and that is very evident, since that is what cell phones looked like then.

The giant phone, which appropriately is home to Movistar Communications, is surrounded by several parks, making for a very easy view of the building. Stretching 34 floors high, it is an architectural landmark in Santiago and was the tallest building in the country until 1999.
