With this monumental study, the author of The Works: Anatomy of a City adjusts her focus to the skyscrapers that mark the skylines of the world's greatest cities. With the curiosity of an outsider and the expertise of a specialist, she examines every aspect of these imposing structures from their construction site underpinnings to their sometimes wind-sensitive pinnacles. Even for lifelong city-dwellers, Heights will an education; for readers there and elsewhere, it will be a treat.
