Summary
Highrise: Idea and Reality offers a comprehensive examination of the highrise phenomenon and its surprisingly recent international ubiquity. A wide range of contemporary highrises are explored in their broadest cultural and civic contexts, contexts which can vary greatly from continent to continent, and from culture to culture, illuminating not only the effects of these imposing buildings upon their immediate landscapes, but also the everyday lives of their inhabitants
