The International Information Center for Structural Engineers

A new project, designed for the 2019 Evolo Skyscraper Award, involves the construction of a skyscraper that will contain a water theme park, hiding an enormous cryptocurrency mining facility inside.

As global infrastructure consistently focuses on building taller and higher buildings, a question arises: What is the maximum height that a skyscraper can reach?

Architects Jaemin Seo and Sanghoon Park from the U.S. designed a fin-shaped skyscraper that is inspired by the Tower of Babel and is completely made out of plastic.

The 56-story London skyscraper-called The Diamond-will be constructed at 100 Leadenhall Street, in the city's financial district.

The proposed Dynamic Tower Hotel will have individually rotating units, allowing guests to swivel their rooms 360 degrees 

Nowadays, in cities around the world such as in New York, in Tokyo, in Shanghai, in Dubai etc, structural engineers build skyscrapers for residential as well as business purposes. The design, the evolution of construction and the style of architecture are drawing attention as many of these buildings are seen as “signature” buildings.
