Can skyscrapers be sustainable?
Hello Everybody!!

Being an Architect and being concerned with the present situation for the growth of the Indian cities, I have started looking forward for the high rise constrution as a option for the future development of the cities like Mumbai and Delhi.

1) But do "sustainable skyscrapers" really exist? (I have studied works of Ken Yeang, and found it as a possible but not a so appealing solution)

2) Skyscrapers are icons of the 20th century in developed nations. But are they an possible option in developing nations like India?

Do you have any opinions?
