While the author is in no sense a “doom and gloom” man, it appears that here in the United States, it will be difficult during the next 20 years to replicate the widespread growth of tall buildings that we have seen in the past 20 years. The reasons for the skyscraper still exist, but they are simply not as collectively powerful as they once were.
