I think that in the near future we will see skyscrapers of 2000m of more.
Can you imagine that?

Why do such buildings need to be pressurised? People can live at 10,000 feet with no problem

It's all a bit far-fetched, but not impossible. I guess Structures like these can reach higher than the Standard "Tower".

But there is always a limit. At altitudes where the buildings have to be pressurized, the cost would be immense. Besides that, I wouldn't want to live there if I could not even open a Window.


Yeah what a concept!

Maybe they will find on Mars some day the construction materials that make this become reality.
