The global economic crisis does not seem to affect plans for innovative building architecture across the map. This article in BusinessWeek shows us how many architects are working seamlessly on building some of the tallest buildings around the world.
At Cityscape Dubai, a property developer Nakheel unveiled plans to build a $38 billion, 3,000 ft skyscraper by the year 2020. Technology, materials, and design are becoming more sophisticated by the day, and so there at least 69 supertall buildings currently in construction. Interesting enough most of the supertall buildings under construction will not be in the US. Could there be a direct correlation to the struggling economy?
