Return of the Skyscraper

Time Magazine is reporting the return of the skyscraper.

I for one am glad to see this. For one, skylines of US cities were frankly becoming rather boring in comparison to those of Asia and to a lesser extent, Europe. I look forward to the time when America's cities are again shining examples of both engineering and creativity.

In addition, this shows that we, as a country, have only been strengthened by events such as 9/11 and we will not live our lives as the terrorists choose, but rather as we ourselves choose.

One of my favorites is this Manhattan condo by Spanish architect Santiago Calatreva.

80 South Street Tower

I agree... Can't wait to see this building when it's finished! Santiago is an amazing architect.
