No other structure has had a more transformative impact on our cities than the skyscraper. From their birth in the United States in the 1880s to their domination across Asia in the 2000s, our shift to a more urbanised society has seen these structures rise on every continent.
But while our cities used to gradually evolve, the rate at which we now build skyscrapers is transforming skylines before our eyes.
Journeying to each of the six inhabited continents, The B1M looked at the cities which will undergo the most dramatic skyline transformations over the next five years.
With so much currently uncertain, The B1M have assessed each city based on the number of projects it currently has under construction – as well as future projects that form part of economic recovery plans with a high chance of becoming reality.
