The challenge of building ever-higher buildings is addressed in this program of the Metropolis series. As technological advances provide the means to reach new heights in architecture, what are the effects on the populations of the ever-growing urban worlds? In Metropolis: The Tower Without Ends, engineer Tony Fitzpatrick looks at plans for an innovative new structure in Paris that raises concerns about its stability in adverse weather conditions. The program examines both the history of tall buildings and their future, as the desire for a modern skyline must be tempered with an eye to strong structural stability.
