The Skyscraper Museum

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.


Connecting New York’s past and future is a principle of enlightened urban planning. The Skyscraper Museum's continuing Sustainability Series features professionals who demonstrate the leading edge in sustainable design and technology. Each program explores a major tower project or architectural practice, public policy issues and questions for the future.
