You can't go by the shape of the building alone. No matter what the shape, presumably structural engineers carefully considered how the building will support itself. Buildings are not single monolithic structures. Failure by "tipping over" is very rare.
Buildings generally fail when the right combination of individual structural elements fail. You might think that tall buildings are therefore at more risk. That is not necessarily so, since the support structures were designed for the load, and therefore are much more sturdy.
For example, you can build a simple structure with a few spindly posts holding up a flat roof that falls down in the next breeze. On the other hand, there can be 3-story structures that withstand hurricanes and earthquakes. Building codes usually require structures to withstand some level of earthquake and wind loading. Taller structures are more susceptible to these, but also designed stronger as a result.
For a building to be safe, the engineers had to do the calculations correctly, the builder had to follow the design correctly and use the proper materials, and the inspectors had to verify this. Any broken link in this chain can lead to disaster. There have certainly been cases of bad design, builders saving money by using sub-standard materials, and inspectors getting paid off to look the other way.
So how can you know any one building is safe? You don't. That's life. You are implicitly trusting in the process every time you walk into any building, cross a bridge, go under a bridge, enter a tunnel, ride an elevator, or even drive a car. There is risk in everything we do. Fortunately, we have systems in place to mitigate risk from structural failure. A building falling on you is a tiny risk in most places relative to other risk you routinely take without even thinking about it.
Of course, there are enough test cases that even with very low risk, there will be some failures. A famous example of unsafe design was the Citycorp tower in New York City. The engineer screwed up, and the building would likely have collapsed in the right wind storm. This was caught by someone looking over the design well after the building was built. The building was quietly upgraded to fix the problem. Meanwhile people in the building were taking much higher risk than they thought. In this particular case, the fix was in place before the right winds came along, and nobody got squished under tons of crumbling concrete.
As Dirty Harry would say, "Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?". In the end it's a probability game, with the shape of the building having little to do with that probability.
