Since the advent of industrialization, building skyscrapers has been consistent throughout the developed and developing world. Although making gigantic buildings has been practiced by some major ancient civilizations as well, like the Pyramids in Egypt and Mexico, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Great Wall of China, and the Greek Pantheon etc. However, the actual ‘skyscrapers’ started rising on the face of the earth when the human civilization started expanding and developing industries, factories, businesses and automobiles. These skyscrapers not only depict the acme of architectural skillfulness and technological efficiency, but are also a mean of silently telling the world about your nation’s grandeur and magnificence. The many skyscrapers in a city, the more it will be a depiction of its development and progress.
