September 3 is Skyscraper Day!
Skyscrapers are tall buildings that stand higher than their surrounding environment and that significantly change the skyline upon being built. Some skyscrapers are built so tall that they are considered engineering and architectural works of art.
Celebrate Skyscraper Day by admiring the skyscrapers in your city…then go to the top of the highest building in your city and admire the view from there!
Did You Know…that as of 2011, the tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai? The skyscraper was built in 2010, contains 160 floors and is 2,717 feet! Check out more of the world’s tallest buildings by clicking here.
