Why they are no megatalls buildings in New York City


Recommended Posts

Ces vidéos sont toujours ultra pertinentes pour les amateurs de design, d'architecture et de méga-projets, elles répondent d'ailleurs à plusieurs questions d'intérêt général. Comme on peut le voir dans cette vidéo et bien d'autres, les défis d'ingénierie ne sont souvent qu'un obstacle parmi tant d'autres. Même l'argent n'ouvre pas toujours la porte aux plus grandes ambitions, parce que le contexte diffère d'un endroit à l'autre et peut représenter dans certains cas la contrainte la plus importante.

Vidéo très intéressante et avec des belles vues :)

Interesting video, but not sure I entirely agree with voiceover dude. Many New Yorkers I've met absolutely hate the freedom tower, and see the structure as an inferior version of what was destroyed on 9/11, definitely not the symbolism they were looking for as a worthy replacement of the WTC.

Another thing he didn't mention was FAA regulations in the states. NYC is located near three major airports & as such is in a very busy air traffic zone. This has an impact on building heights as well.
