Skyscrapers: The Icarus Moment in Architecture
Publication Date
Abstract It must be tall, every inch of it tall. The force and power of altitude must be in it, the glory and pride of exaltation must be in it. It must be every inch a proud and soaring thing, rising in sheer exultation that from bottom to top it is a unit without a single dissenting line...Louis Sullivan, architect of the first skyscraper -1896.
