i could see the frankfurt fair trade tower(=messeturm) rising right out my children's room windows, and i also remember some sort of neighbourhoodparty i attended with my kindergardengroup when westendstreet1 construction began.
since then i`ve got a crush on skyscrapers

my first Skycraper was the pacific tower in Fresno California. its funny because when i was about 5 when i would go to downtown i would look for this building but i could never find it. it turns out ive been walking right past it every single time. i never knew the bottom of skyscrapers werent always the same as the top

Refuting and debunking crazy 9/11 conspiracy theories got me interested in skyscrapers. The WTC twins were beautiful

The first highrise I saw was hotel sheraton in Lisbon.

The first skyscraper was GAN tower in La Defense, Paris. I remember that I liked the simple design and the green color of the glass. Obviously, around him there were more towers... but it was a dark, cold day, so the green windows made a strong contrast.
