Date When Celebrated : September 3 rd
Skyscraper Day is a day to appreciate and admire the world's tallest skyscrapers.
Skyscrapers are truly engineering and architectural marvels. In many crowded cities, space is in short supply, and real estate prices are ever increasing. Building "up" becomes more and more logical. As technical capabilities in construction improved, skyscraper buildings have become taller and taller. In addition, there is a certain prestige to have one of the tallest buildings in the world in your city and country.
A Tall Debate: There is some disagreement over how to measure the height of skyscrapers. At issue, is whether to measure the height of flagpoles and antenna atop most tall buildings.
Have a very happy Skyscraper Day.
Origin of Skyscraper Day:
We found no factual information about this special day. But, we do find skyscrapers to be fascinating.
"Skyscraper day is on September 3rd because that is Louis H. Sullivan's birthday (1856), the architect credited with the first skyscrapers." Nathan Bird, Sparks, Nevada
