What is the Skyscraper Day?

Skyscraper Day is a time to celebrate one of the most influential inventions in human history. Tall multi-story buildings have enabled people to live more closely together, saving land from development, and turning cities into artificial mountain ranges, each with its own distinct look.

The 3rd of September was chosen for Skyscraper Day to commemorate the first master architect of high-rise buildings, Louis Sullivan, who was born in Boston on 3 September 1856. Sullivan worked in Chicago with William LeBaron Jenney, engineer of the first steel-framed 10-story building, the now-demolished Home Insurance Building.

Skyscraper Day is an occasion to explore, photograph, discuss, and admire tall buildings. An architectural tour is an excellent way to celebrate. People celebreate the Skyscraper Day worldwide every year on September 3rd. 

More information about Skyscraper Day can be found on the Skyscraper Day website.
