I love this very short moment of the morning to take pictures. The colours are very rich and the image is quite sharp.

Financial Times

Quote:
Neither 9/11 nor the financial crisis has blunted the urge to build tall



Cass Gilbert, architect of New York’s Woolworth Building, called skyscrapers “machines for making the land pay”. But skyscrapers were always more about ego than profit.

By the southern end of London Bridge, early 2012 will bring the topping out of the ú700m ($1.1bn) Shard, the tallest building in the European Union. Across the Thames, The Pinnacle, the City of London’s own loftiest tower, is being built. This year, the construction was announced in Jeddah of the world record-breaking Kingdom Tower, which at 1km-plus high would top Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

Costly to build, hard to negotiate: why do developers keep trying to go so high? “You have to pay a lot more upfront but you want it to be an iconic design, one that people want to be involved in and one they want to keep,” says Khalid Affara, head of Arab Investments, the group behind the 288 metre Pinnacle. “It means you have guaranteed longevity.”

After aircraft smashed into New York’s Twin Towers a decade ago, there was a moment when it seemed the skyscraper would for ever embody the fear of catastrophe. Yet the Freedom Tower being built beside the Ground Zero site displays the skyscraper’s surprising resilience. The risk for developers is more that by having so much of their ego vested in the project, they forget to pay attention to economic realities.
