Why so many buildings? And so many different styles? If you want to study the details of these particular buildings, you should at least make a trip to New York and Chicago and take a look at them in real life.

good luck , but i think it will be so hard for you ....
for the trump tower i also wanted to have the structure and facade detail , but there is no information on it on the internet . ..
you should contact the architect studio or find a very good book on the skyscrapers !!!
or as kiboko say , going to see the building for real !!!

Good luck and fat chance in getting anything is this day of constant "Fear of TERRORISM" thanks to the WAR CRIMINAL bush* the Patriot Act!

Nobody lets you get information on existing buildings anymore...

I Know it's almost impossible to find the construction detail but for my thesis I have to analyze the development of skyscraper's envelope in Chicago and NY in the years.
I've identified three generations of envelopes in order with the definition of Banham.
For each generation I have to pick and analyze the first ten skyscrapers according to the height, I do this in order to have a scientific base and not a casual selection (wich is not objective). Having said this how do you suggest to continue my study? How to choose the right skyscrapers to analyze?

Sorry again for my english
Thanks
