Why are landmarks so important to cities? They create a sense of identity and symbolize to citizens and visitors a city’s history and values. Skyscrapers frequently celebrate a city’s successful times or new advances in technology. Today’s urban city planning creates future beacons for cities which convey the new messages of sustainability, green choices and living responsibly. From aerodynamically designed glass towers to updating old landmarks with green solutions to designing state-of-the-art transportation halls and tunnels, city development can display all the advances in technology and thinking in landmarks.
Tackling the challenges of growing populations requires solutions of all shapes and sizes. Recently, record-breaking constructions of skyscrapers, tunnels, and even entire cities have captured our imagination. The mega project suggests bigger is better when it comes to initiating impactful change.
