Description:
This is a category for skyscrapers, any structure over 150 meters or 500 feet in height.
Expanded Description:
Skyscrapers define the modern city. Almost every major city has its unique collection of skyscrapers. Most cities can be recognized from the skyscrapers in their skyline.


Early skyscrapers were built with a base, shaft and crown with Beaux Arts or Classical Revival details. This morphed into Art Deco skyscrapers, which emphasized their verticality and usually had stepped set-backs. After World War II the International Style, basically glass or concrete boxes with little detail, became popular. As a reaction to the utilitarianism of the International Style, extravagant Post-Modern buildings became the latest trend in designing skyscrapers.
Instructions for Posting a Skyscrapers Waymark:
To list your skyscraper, make sure it’s listed at Emporis. The height of the building at Emporis will be used to determine the structure’s height. In the long description, include any interesting details about the building. One original photograph showing the skyscraper is required. Please try to get a second original photograph showing the skyscraper’s position in the city’s skyline.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To visit this waymark, you must provide a description of your experience and add one photograph (taken by you) of any part of the skyscraper to the gallery. This photograph does not have to have either you or your GPS receiver in it.
