The Age of Residential Skyscrapers

From New York to L.A., skyscrapers are being reinvented as residential areas.

"Calatrava's vertiginously tall tower, to include 250 condominiums atop a hotel, is planned as a residential building, without a cubicle, water cooler or corner office in sight. The same is true of another matchstick-thin Calatrava skyscraper slated for Lower Manhattan as well as towers Frank Gehry has designed in New York and is designing on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles."
