First C’ toweris currently the First tower, with its 231 meters, who is the most high scratch–french sky.
The smaller lap of the prize list Proof that size does not always matter, the Marseillaise is only 135 meters high and is the smallest scraper–sky of the rank. The winner of this 2019 edition, the MGM Cotai, in Macao, China, is also only 151 meters long.
The scratcher lifespan–sky can exceed 100 years. Thus, the scratch–sky of New York built during the 1890s still exist today, at least the tall ones. Most of timea scratch–sky not’is destroyed only to make way for a building higher.
Indeed, following the destruction of cities in Western Europe caused by the Second World War, many people thought that the reconstruction would result in the modernization of the metropolises, in particular by the creation of scratches–skies similar to those already present in North America.
For the first time in twenty years, itis a Russian building that wins first place in the ranking. The tip of the Lakhta Center, which culminates at 462 meters (image above at the top of the article),is not only the more high scratch–sky of Russia, but also the more top of Europe and the 14th more top of world.
The recipe for glass is therefore well known and in the end it has evolved little. Its central element remains the sand coming from the quarries. It is mixed with soda and lime and heated to 1600 degrees.
And yes, because glass, this material derived (also!) from stone, has become the star of the most spectacular architectures. Yet its history has accompanied man for 5 millennia, and benefiting from the progress of research, he is more than ever in modernity by becoming active, intelligent or self-cleaning…
This function of the glazing is related to the exterior surface of the building and allows dirt to be broken down when it is deposited on the glass,” explains the specification manager at Glassolutions. One more advantage for this material which has not finished progressing.
Today the materials often differ at the level of the facades. Some skyscrapers, for example, have an entirely glazed facade, which is very aesthetic since it allows color effects and light reflections. However, there are materials that are inevitable in the construction of a skyscraper: steel, concrete and glass.
