92 Super Skyscrapers & Towers

From Dancing Dubai Towers to Solar-Powered Skyscrapers

— November 28, 2009 — Eco
This cluster of skyscrapers and towers isn't for those with a fear of heights. From towering designs that are just concepts to in-the-flesh architecture, these incredible feats of construction are eye-popping global landmarks.

My favorites in this series of skyscrapers and towers are the designs that feature sky-high green parks. Imagine playing a soccer or baseball game 50 stories above ground!

Implications - Skyscrapers are the norm for businesses who want a private working space within the city. These office structures have cutting-edge designs that are more than just eye-candy. Architects are adopting clean aesthetics that provide a friendly work space that provides all the required needs for employees. These architects prove that looks and function do go hand-in-hand.
