Super skyscrapers are pushing the limits of engineering, technology and design to become greener, stronger, smarter and more luxurious than their predecessors. This four-part series follows the creation of four extraordinary buildings.

      This looks great! can’t wait to see it!! I enjoy seeing programs showing how buildings are built- I find it amazing to see the progress as each floor is done.

      The design seems to be smooth, apparently without places that will trap the snow and ice. But the fact is that we had problems of ice falling from the building this week. Is this merely due too the fact that top of the building is not finished – or is there a design problem that needs fixing to prevent future episodes of dangerous ice falls?
