Tall Buildings

Tall Buildings

Some students will be fascinated by this Museum of Modern Art site, although its sophisticated vocabulary requires a fairly high reading level. As soon as you click on Enter, the site actually takes control of your screen with an imposing array of tall building silhouettes. Some of the buildings have been built, some are under consideration. Clicking on a silhouette provides an informative page where authors relate building detail and design issues. The main focus of these evaluations is to address "safety, structural soundness, and sustainability." It could provoke some inspired discussions about modern architecture.
