Awash with historical landmarks, heritage façades, and their related height-restrictions, building skyscrapers in European cities has always required a nuanced approach, one which creatively examines context and endeavors to offer benefits to the surrounding community. Thus, the most successful projects deftly incorporate existing structures, which both helps new and extended buildings blend into their surroundings, while also supporting the dynamic populations of Europe’s growing cities. This discussion examines strategies and insights about navigating these considerations across Europe.
