Vertical. The City from Satellites to Bunkers

Skyscrapers are for the elites, as Steve Graham writes in his book Vertical. The City from Satellites to Bunkers. In overpopulated cities, wealthy residents seek a place in a tall building with excellent views, fresh air and plenty of entertainment on the top floors of the buildings. In the interview, Professor Steve Graham will talk about the history and modern development of multi-level cities, about the technologies that make it possible to create "ultra-high" skyscrapers, as well as how high-rise housing becomes a new luxury.
