Skyscrapers Docuseries Premiering on Science Channel


Science Channel is set to launch Skyscrapers: Engineering the Future, a new series about the gravity-defying designs that stand out in city skylines.

The six-episode series will give viewers never-before-seen looks at architectural feats in metropolises around the world. Among the highlighted towers is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai that at 2,722-feet-tall is the tallest building in the world. In Singapore, Skyscrapers: Engineering the Future visits the Marina Bay Sands hotel, which operates as a modern micro-city. The Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, Aqua in Chicago, Melbourne’s Eureka Tower, Dubai’s Cayan Tower and London’s The Shard are also featured in the series.

Produced by WildBear Entertainment for Science Channel, Skyscrapers: Engineering the Future will bow on Wednesday, April 24, at 10 p.m. A two-hour special, World’s Greatest Skyscrapers with host Rob Bell, will lead into the premiere at 8 p.m.
