Summary
A new generation of skyscrapers is rising above our cities-Super Skyscrapers. With less space in urban areas, we are building higher and faster than ever before. But for these skyscrapers, it's not just building big that counts-it's thinking big. These skyscrapers are pushing the limits of engineering, technology, and design to become greener, stronger, smarter, and more luxurious than their predecessors. All are destined to become the celebrity giants of the future. SUPER SKYSCRAPERS follows the creation of four extraordinary skyscrapers, showcasing how they will revolutionize the way we live, work, and how we protect ourselves from potential threats, both from the environment and terrorist attacks. Filmed over the course of a year, each episode follows the rise of a single skyscraper during a crucial timeframe in their construction period. With unprecedented access to the building process, SUPER SKYSCRAPERS goes behind the scenes of construction to show these iconic landmarks in the making. A host of architects, designers, and engineers reveals the over-riding ambitions of each building and the colossal challenges that lie on the journey from conception to completion
