With the number of global cities increasing in the next decade, we would be seeing an increase in skyscrapers that would adorn our horizon. What will the next decade bring to us as innovations around buildings and architecture would be interesting to see. I had a chance to visit the Liberty museum of science in New Jersey where they had a showcase segment on skyscrapers. It was very interesting to see how the experts are looking at the next generation of skyscrapers and how their ideas of humans living in the sky can become a reality soon.
