A world of words
A very tall modern building, usually in a city.
Skyscrapers are usually built where land is expensive, but economy of space isn’t the only reason. They are considered symbols of a city’s ecomomic power, having the same role as temples and palaces in the past.
Skyscrapers are often like small cities where there is space for offices, shops, hotels, restaurants and other services.
Planning experts say that these tall buildings are part of our future for many reasons: first, they require less land to build and are generally better at conserving electricity and other resources. Besides, people who live in cities with tall buildings are less likely to own a car, helping to reduce air pollution.
However, a lot of people think that these huge structures ruin the look of a city. What do you think?
