This February, follow the creation of four extraordinary buildings that will revolutionize how we live, work and protect ourselves from potential threats. As urban space shrinks, we build higher and faster than ever before, creating a new generation of skyscrapers. Super skyscrapers are pushing the limits of engineering, technology and design to become greener, stronger, smarter and more luxurious than their predecessors.
