SKYSCRAPER: SKY IS THE LIMIT

“Needs have no end & dreams have no boundary”

Every human being has a dream. These dreams differ from person to person. Some have simple dreams and other have big dreams in their life. I think most of the peoples have big dreams but everyone can not fulfill it. They sacrifice their dreams for lack of ability or family pressure or external obstacles. Some wants to be a good doctor or a good teacher or some wants to be a famous politician. Some pass their whole life for new innovation or some lead their life with passion or some sacrifice their life for their nation. Some people have a dream to live like a star or rich and extravagant life or other just want to live a simple and honest life. There are no limits of dreaming. People live to dream and to fulfill them. Like every one else I have a dream of my own. My dream is little different from others. It’s not that simple or easy to fulfill but I will try heart and soul to make it true. My dream is larger than life; I want to touch the sky with my own creation. Not by flying a plane or a rocket but by building the tallest building of the world in Bangladesh. It’s going to be a large skyscraper, touching the sky and above all structure that was ever built by human civilization. I know its bit difficult but not impossible, as we all know that Bangladesh is a poor country and not capable to build such a huge structure. But still Bangladesh is a land of opportunities and nothing is impossible so I have my hope. Before discussing my dream lets know what skyscraper is.

1. Definition of skyscrapers:
A skyscraper is a tall, continuously habitable building. There is no official definition or height above which a building may clearly be classified as a skyscraper. Most cities define the term empirically; even a building of 80 meters (262 feet) may be considered a skyscraper if it protrudes above its built environment and changes the overall skyline. The word "skyscraper" was first applied to buildings in the late 19th century as a result of public amazement at the tall buildings being built in Chicago and New York City.
The structural definition of the word skyscraper was refined later by architectural historians, based on engineering developments of the 1880s that had enabled construction of tall multi-storey buildings. This definition was based on the steel skeleton—-as opposed to constructions
