The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. The Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.
This exhibition would not have come together in so timely and topical a manner without the help of numerous individuals who are involved with the day-to-day design and development of the projects detailed here. One or two people were generally our gateway to information generated by a team of professionals. Thanks are owed to all, but especially to Jarrett White and Richard Dubrow of Macklowe Properties; Jeff Dvorett of Extell; Dana Getman of SHoP; Bart Sullivan and Silvian Marcus of WSP; Derek Kelly of RWDI: Jim Davidson of SLCE; John Cetra of Cetra Ruddy; Charles Curran of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Michael Samuellian of Related Companies; and Peter Morris Dixon of Robert A. M. Stern Architects.
In house, the content of the exhibition benefited from the exceptional dedication and generosity of Ondel Hylton, a former Museum employee and now volunteer whose passion for skyscrapers and research on projects both past and future were invaluable to conceiving the show. Another volunteer, Joey Octaviano, worked with Ondel and spent many hours creating our air-rights transfer model of 432 Park Avenue. Finally, The Skyscraper Museum thanks its hard-working staff and interns: Bryson Armstrong, Rick Fudge, Sben Korsh, Georgi Kyorlenski, Nicole Lau, Nick Miller, Stephanie Morales, Evan Pellegrino, Ellie Rubin, Katherine Sullivan, Adam Thalenfeld, Cristina Vanech, and Elizabeth Volchok.
