Summary
Examines the challenges facing architects and engineers from Japan, Taiwan and Canada as they plan to construct Sky City, a towering, vertical concrete and glass community in Tokyo. Twice the height of any existing building, the walled community looks impressive on paper, but will it be able to withstand earthquakes, typhoons and fire?
