Do you know what the current tallest building or structure standing today is? How abut 5000 years ago? The difference in these two buildings is enormous, but the one thing they have in common is that they’ve both held the title for tallest building/structure in the world for a period of time after being built. This infographic takes us on a trip back in time to when pyramids and cathedrals were battling it out amongst themselves to claim the title of tallest in the world.
It shares an interesting view into how the progression of technology over time has helped these buildings and structures grow larger by the century. This diagram shows that people in every culture were a part of the “race for the sky”, from those in Middle East countries, to Egyptians, to Catholics across Europe, and of course to the modern day era of building skyscrapers as high as our technology allows.
