Last week the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) launched The Skyscraper Center—www.skyscrapercenter.com—a new web site that will serve as a top resource for information on tall buildings around the world. The site takes many components of the CTBUH’s well-established database and adds new functionality, new information, and extensive assets for both professionals and non-professionals exploring the world of tall buildings.
The Skyscraper Center contains a profile for every completed building taller than 200 meters globally, as well as thousands of other projects in various stages of development. The home page of The Skyscraper Center features a powerful world map tool which can generate important facts and tall building lists on any county in the world. Additionally, new features allow users to easily access updated news on projects and view the latest additions to the database.
The site is only the first phase of development for The Skyscraper Center. In the near future, CTBUH plans to add several significant new elements, including robust city and country profiles which will provide important graphs and statistics on specific areas.
