Skyscraper Roofs

By: CloudyDay11 , 2:06 PM GMT on May 29, 2014

Hi All.

Today I'm going to talk about skyscrapers. A lot of early skyscrapers had flat roofs. The reasoning was well, just because. Then as materials improved and skyscrapers shot towards the sky, spiky points became popular.The spiky points became popular because the architects wanted to show how HIGH up the buildings could go. Now flat roofs are back in style. Why? Since the more prevalent use of helicopters by wealthy businessmen became in style, many new skyscrapers have flat roofs with a landing pad.

You probably didn't need to know this did you? But it'll be cool to impress your friends with your knowledge of the trends in skyscraper roof design.
