Celebrating World Skyscraper Day (September 3,2020)
Skyscraper Day is a day to appreciate and admire the world's tallest skyscrapers.
A skyscraper is a continuously habitable high-rise building that has over 40 floors and is taller than 150 m (492 ft). Historically, the term first referred to buildings with 10 to 20 floors in the 1880s. The meaning shifted with advancing construction technology during the 20th century. Skyscrapers may host offices, hotels, residential spaces, and retail spaces.
"Skyscraper day is on September 3rd because that is Louis H. Sullivan's birthday (1856), the architect credited with the first skyscrapers." Nathan Bird, Sparks, Nevada.
