The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. The Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.
DOWNTOWN NEW YORK: THE ARCHITECTURE OF BUSINESS/ THE BUSINESS OF BUILDINGS

The show ran through December 1997 and was by viewed by some 20,000 visitors.
