Majestic skyscrapers dotting the skyline of mega cities are undoubtedly going to be the future of our planet. From the ‘Mile High’ Kingdom Power project announced in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, skyscrapers have now become a status symbol for countries trying to flaunt their economic might. From the iconic Manhattan skyline to Chicago, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Frankfurt, London, Sydney, to our very own Mumbai, tall buildings are here to stay. With real estate prices skyrocketing, and building space becoming premium, it is a trend that is here to stay.
The focus among the architects and engineers community in recent times has been to ensure that these tall buildings look as majestic as possible, while at the same time incorporating several sustainable features in them in order to make them adhere to Green Building norms, which are getting stricter by the day.
