A skyscraper is an extra-tall, habitable building that towers above the other constructions in the skyline. Skyscrapers are used as residential, commercial, office, retail, hotel or industrial building. The distinctive high-rise buildings have a similar name in different languages: skyscraper, gratte-ciel, arranha-céu, rascacielos, grattacielo, wolkenkratzer, wolkenkrabber.


The history of high towers goes back thousands of years. Since the Middle Ages, artists, architects and engineers have fought a battle in the sky. The term “skyscraper” appeared in the 1880s, referring to the huge commercial buildings appearing in New York and Chicago. Engineers experimented with 2 new construction materials, iron and steel, and were able to support the tall buildings with a steel skeleton of horizontal beams and vertical columns. The typical modern American city, with a concentration of tall multi-storey buildings offering living, business and service spaces, was born.


Today, the image of a skyscraper in our urban society is that of a mega structure rising to the sky that can be found in world-class cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Dubai, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur.

In the last decades, records passed from the USA to other countries. In 1997, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers (Malaysia) became world’s tallest man-made construction, followed in 2004 by Taiwan’s Taipei 101. Since this year, the architectural record passed to the United Arab Emirates’ Burj Dubai/Burj Khalifa with its height of 828 m (2,717 ft). The Burj Dubai skyscraper has over 150 habitable floors and 60 maintenance levels in the spire. The tower incorporates motifs from traditional Arabic art, reflecting the cultural influences of its environment.
