Uninhabitable High-Rises

Unaffordable energy costs may render high-rise buildings unusable. Cross-ventilation, daylighting, elevators & thermal mass are all difficult to impossible to achieve as these buildings are currently constructed, so without cheap fossil fuels, these buildings just might become uninhabitable. This article is a follow-up to Richard Florida's Friday night plenary and Léon Krier's Saturday morning plenary at CNU20 in West Palm Beach last week.
