Antoni Gaudí
, for a skyscraper in New York City
New York City
. The project was commissioned in May 1908. Planned at a total height of 360 metres, many believed its futuristic design to be unrealistic for its time. Little is known about its origin, and the project remained unknown until 1956, when a report by Joan Matamala i Flotats was published, called "When the New World called Gaudí". There are two stories as to why the project was cancelled; that Gaudi fell ill, or that he, as a Communist, cancelled the project on principle after objecting to it catering to wealthy clients. The drawings for the Attraction Hotel

Skyscraper
A SKYSCRAPER is a continuously habitable high-rise building that has over 40 or 50 floors and is taller than approximately 100 m (328 ft). Historically, the term first referred to buildings with 10 to 20 floors in 1880s. The definition shifted with advancing construction technology during the 20th Century. Skyscrapers may contain offices, commercial and residential uses. For buildings above a height of 300 m (984 ft), the term "supertall" can be used, while skyscrapers reaching beyond 600 m (1,969 ft) are classified as "megatall". One common feature of skyscrapers is having a steel framework that supports curtain walls . These curtain walls either bear on the framework below or are suspended from the framework above, rather than resting on load-bearing walls of conventional construction. Some early skyscrapers have a steel frame that enables the construction of load-bearing walls taller than of those made of reinforced concrete
