Hotel Attraction
Hotel
Hotel
Attraction was a proposed project by architect Antoni Gaudí, for a skyscraper in 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.[1] 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.[1] The drawings for the Attraction Hotel

Skyscraper
A skyscraper is a continuously habitable high-rise building that has over 40 floors[1] and is taller than approximately 150 m (492 ft).[2] 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.[1] Skyscrapers may host commercial offices or residential space, or both. 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".[3] 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
