New, 4 comments

How high can construction firms go when it comes to supertall structures? A New York magazine article spoke with engineers and architects, asking how far we can take the built environment, using Frank Lloyd Wright's plan for the mile-high Illinois on Chicago's lakefront (pictured) as an example. The answer seems to be two miles. Sadly, the Spire wasn't be a part of these discussions. [New York Magazine]
