If you have the time, I would highly recommend you spend 47 minutes to watch one of my favorite documentaries of all time.
The history of tall buildings tells an inspiring story of meeting and overcoming huge challenges in engineering, in management, in materials science, in finance, in construction technology, and in environmental sciences. This documentary is a beautifully made film that covers it all, beginning in 1870 with the Equitable Life building in New York and culminating with Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, at 2,716.5 feet the world’s tallest building.
The film explores amazing advances in elevators, materials, architecture, heat management, craning, form construction, and much more. It is 100% worth watching or showing to anybody interested in building or developing skyscrapers or trying to solve problems with space use. I hope you enjoy and it becomes one of your favorites too!
