At one time, the high-rise building was uniquely of the United States. Now, all of the tallest buildings being planned or being constructed, at least those known to us, are to be found in Asia or in the Middle East. The Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong and the Shanghai World Financial Center, both to be discussed later in this paper, are examples. Whether or not you are so involved in the design of these high-rise buildings, it is good to pause for a moment – to look briefly at the origins of these creatures of our urban life. Leslie E.
