A question about skyscrapers...
« on: 08 April, 2019, 03:19:16 PM »
We were chatting about how London's city skyline seems to be being taken over by skyscrapers - and there was one point we could't agree on..

How many floors does a building have to have before it can be called a skyscraper? 

Is there  minimum limit?  Is a 15 storey building a skyscraper? A thirty storey building? More? When does a 'tall' building deserve to be called a skyscraper?
