Format: Hardcover
The book starts with an interesting history of skyscrapers, then goes into details of 50 skyscrapers from the past 100 years. Each skyscraper has 2-4 pages, including large photographs. I was a little disappointed that the 2IFC tower in Hong Kong was not included, but happy to see Taipei 101. An excellent touch was to add 6 upcoming skyscrapers, like London's Shard of Glass and the amazing CCTV headquarters in Beijing.

I was looking for something with lots of pictures. Also something that was up to date & not too technical. This book was perfect. It's the 2008 edition but has images of the buildings in planning at the moment. I would recommend!

great book, up to date, bought for my nephew (14 years old), he loves it, even though he is a little young to study in detail. Good for aficionados and people in construction.

Format: Hardcover
Andres Lepik's Skyscrapers is an oversized presentation fitting to its subject of skyscrapers, providing tall full-page photos of technological monuments to accompany discussions of major world skyscraper icons and their backgrounds. An exciting survey of the past, present and future, Lepik's Skyscrapers earns a place in any serious architectural library.
