Skyscraper Appreciation Day

Skyscraper Appreciation Day

Skyscraper Appreciation Day is observed on August 10th, which commemorates the birthday of the architect William Van Alen. Van Alen is best known for his work on the Chrysler Building in New York City, which is considered one of the most iconic skyscrapers in the world and a prime example of Art Deco architecture.

The Chrysler Building was completed in 1930 and held the title of the world’s tallest building for a brief period before being surpassed by the Empire State Building. However, the Chrysler Building remains a beloved symbol of New York City and is considered a masterpiece of engineering and design.

On Skyscraper Appreciation Day, people often take the opportunity to learn more about the history and design of the Chrysler Building and other skyscrapers, as well as appreciate their significance in the development of cities and the modern world.

On Skyscraper Appreciation Day, people often take guided tours of tall buildings, attend lectures and exhibitions, and learn about the history and design of these impressive structures. Cities around the world also light up their tallest buildings in honour of the day.

Overall, Skyscraper Appreciation Day is a day to acknowledge and celebrate the ingenuity, vision, and creativity that have gone into creating these towering structures that have become icons of modern architecture and engineering.
