The impressive exhibition Vertical Cities Expo: the Tallest, the Dreamed and the Unimaginable brings together models of the tallest, most famous and spectacular skyscrapers, built and unbuilt, on a scale from 1:1000. From Dubai to New York and from Moscow to Shanghai to The Hague.

In addition to the skyscrapers you may already know, this expo includes proposed towers such as Tatlin’s Tower (Eiffel Tower, Paris, France), Frank Lloyd Wright’s mile high The Illinois (Empire State Building, New York, USA)  and futuristic mega constructions such as Pyramid City (Tokyo, Japan) and floating city from Architect Buckminster Fuller’s Cloud Nine. The buildings from The Hague are the Strijkijzer (Hague Tower, Rijswijkseplein), De Kroon (Turfmarkt) and New Babylon (Anna van Buerenplein).

As this allows you to compare them to the ones you know, visitors become aware of, and be amazed by the relative height and size of all buildings and they will see how vertical cities can be. Would you want to live in a vertical city? What would be the views from up there? Am I in heaven now? The more you look, the more you will discover. They have worked together with Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Sophia Kinderziekenhuis Rotterdam, Technische Universiteit Delft, Hangaram Design Museum in Seoul en Architectuur Universiteit Yale in Connecticut, USA  en Atrium City Hall, Den Haag.
