New, 4 comments

Steve Snell, city planner and writer at Fast Forward Weekly, examines the consequences of building tall and whether or not cities should pump the brakes on skyscrapers. Whether it's the construction of pillars of exclusion, unnatural environments for birds or blocking sunlight, Snell eloquently argues against the desire for cities to grow taller. With Philly's recent building boom, do you agree with him? [Fast Forward Weekly, Photo: Comcast]
