Skyscrapers 2016 Calendar
The World’s Most Extraordinary Buildings
Based on the landmark, international bestseller Skyscrapers, this gorgeous calendar celebrates some of today’s most significant superstructures as well as beloved classics from around the world.
Every month in the Skyscrapers calendar features a different building, from myriad “supertalls” such as Shanghai Tower, Jin Mao Tower, and the Shanghai World Financial Center in China, as well as the barrier-busting work of architects such as Adrian Smith, who designed the current tall champion, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Smaller images include the interiors and significant design features, building plans, diagrams, the building’s historical background, technological information, and more. Monthly grids include important dates in architectural history, as well as major North American, British, and Australian and New Zealand holidays.
