There's always something changing about Chicago's skyline, and that keeps me interested. A fine example would be "Aqua Tower", a magnificent building, designed by Chicago Architect, Jeanne Gang, which earned the prestigious gold medal award from Emporis, the global building database, who named the Aqua Tower the "2009 Skyscraper of the Year". Aqua was praised for its fascinating shape, which changes depending on the perspective and was cited for the precision of its construction. The honor, known as the Emporis Skyscraper Award, has been given since 2000 and recognizes excellence in aesthetic and functional design. This marks the first time that the prize has gone to a Chicago skyscraper, and to the first woman recipient, Jeanne Gang, founder of Studio Gang Architects.

Rising like a steel and glass splinter from the desert and surrounded by its own man-made lake, the world's tallest building has opened for business in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa (originally Burj Dubai) shatters the previous record set by Taipei 101 in Taiwan by 319 meters (1047 ft). It also holds the title of tallest freestanding man-made structure, topping the Toronto’s CN Tower while still under construction. It differs also in that it is meant to be primarily a residential building. The buildings database website Emporis.com calls it “The first world’s tallest building since prehistoric times to include residential space.”

But as I discovered relatively recently, this remarkable roof also holds a singular international distinction. Because while the U.S. Steel Tower doesn't make the world's 100 tallest buildings in terms of height or number of floors, it stands out in terms of roof area. In fact, nowhere else even comes close. Emporis, a leading international building data firm, has certified that the U.S. Steel Tower has the "largest roof in the world at its height or above." Simply stated, the peak of Pittsburgh is the largest, highest space on top of any building on earth!

Ameryka ma swój Manhattan, Bliski Wschód – Dubaj, Azja Wschodnia – Hongkong. A gdzie jest europejska stolica wieżowców? Kibice przybywający na Euro 2012 zobaczą ją w sercu Polski. Za pięć lat w Warszawie będzie 20 nowych drapaczy chmur, czyli budynków mających co najmniej 100 m wysokości – wynika z szacunków firmy Emporis, która monitoruje rynek wieżowców na świecie. Dołączą one do 17 obiektów już istniejących. Wprawdzie w 2012 r. więcej drapaczy będzie stało w Londynie, Paryżu i Frankfurcie nad Menem, ale tylko w Warszawie będzie można je obejrzeć w centrum – pozostałe metropolie stawiają je bowiem na peryferiach. – Liczba drapaczy chmur świadczy o statusie, dobrobycie i sukcesie miasta – uważa Paul Finch, redaktor naczelny magazynu „Architectural Review", gość seminarium „Going Up".
