Super Skyscrapers

This series follows the building of four extraordinary skyscrapers showing how they will revolutionize where we live, work, how we protect ourselves from earthquakes and terrorist attacks -- and even control the amount of energy we use. As well as following the engineering and construction challenges, this series uses state-of-the-art graphics to bring out the full drama of the build. We will meet the architects and other characters involved in each colossus. How will these new skyscrapers tackle a set of tough questions? How do you protect a skyscraper against a terrorist attack? How do you make a super-tall environmentally friendly building? What is involved in building a mega-fast, 600m elevator? How do you construct absolute luxury? How do you clean the windows on the 100th floor?
