Website Wednesday

Hi all,

I hope I’m not being too selfish by wanting to share this website with you. It’s a new and improved site listing all the skyscrapers in the world. The email I received from CAF stated the following:

The Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has unveiled “The Skyscraper Center,” an interactive global database that it bills as offering “detailed profiles and images on every completed building in the world taller than 200 meters,” plus buildings in other stages of development.

Here is a link to Blair Kamin’s column on this new resource – http://bit.ly/yNkouM

You all know my fascination with architecture and I thought it would be a good resource for any classrooms. Per my conversation with Don after our last Chairs meeting, perhaps it could find its way into our math classes.

One thought on “Website Wednesday

  1. I just spent far too much time looking at this superb website. I had no idea the Trump Tower is fundamentally a concrete building, and that it’s the tallest concrete building in the world.
