Supertall skyscrapers have changed the way that we think about cities, says author of the book Supertall, Stefan Al. He highlights 11 tall buildings that have had a major impact over the past decade.
The tension surrounding tall buildings goes back as far as the Eiffel Tower and even back to the ancient Egyptians, explained Al author of Supertall.
"There’s that contrast between this human aspiration to go higher and at the same time there’s a rejection of novelty," he told Dezeen, referencing the history of tall buildings.
