Overview
A landmark bestseller, Skyscrapers is the unique colossal celebration of the world's most significant and striking super-structures that "captivates the eye, mind and imagination," writes The New York Times.
Uniquely designed to showcase the full color images of these tall buildings, Skyscrapers explores the architecture, engineering, and cultural impact of more than 60 skyline defining buildings, including One World Trade Center, Burj Dubai, the Empire State Building, the Shanghai World Financial Center, the Petronas Towers, the Tribune Tower, the Shard, and the Shanghai Tower.

Arranged chronologically by date of building construction, each informative profile has stunning photos of the defining features, building plans, diagrams, the historical background, and technological information.

Opening with a fascinating interview with master architect, Adrian Smith, Skyscrapers also includes in-depth looks at compelling topics in skyscraper design, including visionary cities and cutting-edge materials that help make these structures green.
