what is the fruture like for the construction of high rise buildings and skyscrapers. is it possible to create buildings that are smart ie can tell when theres an earthquake, and building that are safe ie if we have a repeat of the conditions surrounding9/11 will the builind stay standing long enough for proper evacuation, and is any new innovative materials being used in the construction process. i have already looked at the turning torso in norway(i think) and they have a great new way of constructing each floor. one floor takes takes about two weeks to complete. i have also looked at furistic projects like the freedom tower for hong kong bay where the construction process is completed by machines. what is the fruture , realistically speaking of construction
