John Hill Book Talk: How to Build a Skyscraper

« All Events

In How to Build a Skyscraper, John Hill examines 45 noteworthy skyscrapers from across the decades and around the world – from NYC’s Flatiron Building to the world’s current tallest, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE – and highlights unique characteristics of their history, design, construction, and function. Each iconic building is described in concise text, beautiful photography, and bespoke drawings that reveal the tower’s internal structure. Join us as Hill discusses selections from a book that promises to be a best-seller in The Skyscraper Museum’s book store!

John Hill is an architect, editor-in-chief of the Daily News section of World-Architects.com, and founder/editor-in-chief of the popular blog A Daily Dose of Architecture, where he publishes daily articles about architecture news and book reviews. He is the author of Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture and 100 Years, 100 Buildings.
