Aluminium in building construction: skyscrapers

Aluminium is today used in high-rise buildings and skyscrapers because of its durability, high strength-to-weight ratio, design flexibility and contributions to energy savings. The first building in which Aluminium was widely used in construction was the Empire State Building, built in 1931in New York – and the tallest building in the world until 1970. Aluminium was used in all of the building’s basic structures and widely used in the interior as well. Skyscrapers would weight much more if steel were used, foundation would have to be deeper and  the whole building would be much more expensive.
