In Skyplane, some of architectures leading thinkers and practitioners examine both the global phenomenon of the tall building and its adaptation to the Asian-Pacific context, addressing the following questions: What effect do towers have on our culture and urbanism, environmental sustainability, building economics, the workplace and historic city centres? Can such giants be humane and made more formally engaging? Can architectural influence go beyond the faade or cope with self-aggrandisement and rampant symbolism?
