Description

Skyscrapers have been piercing the clouds since the end of the nineteenth century. As real estate prices soar, the only way to build is up, and developers are always trying to build bigger, better and higher than anyone else. How to Build a Skyscraper gives you the low down on the high buildings that loom over us in cities around the world. This is the most comprehensive collection of modern skyscrapers, and includes 45 new buildings including the current world's tallest tower – the Burj Khalifa (only due to be superseded in 2020). Each iconic building is accompanied by beautiful photography and bespoke illustrations that reveal the internal structure of the building, as well as detailed cross-sections, information on the construction, historical context and architect, and fact boxes containing key dates and materials.
