Some might say New York doesn’t need a skyscraper museum, because it IS a skyscraper museum. Please punch those people. The staff at this museum loves all kinds of skyscrapers, even those far, far away from our so-called vertical metropolis, like Dubai’s Burj Khalifa or Taipei 101. These are the structures the museum profiles, pits against each other in a “World’s Tallest Buildings” competition, and replicates on a 1:500 3D scale (along with a model of Lower Manhattan on a 1:300 scale). But the building worship here is more than, er, steel deep. No modern architect worth his or her salt cares more about form than function, and to that end, there's just as much discussion of what goes on inside these gargantuan buildings: newspaper publishing, finance, or some serious high-end living. Or you, walking around the skyscraper museum. Well, maybe not the last one.
