The skyscraper dictionary collects skyscraper-related terms in the broadest sense of the word. It collects existing names, words, slang and speak, but also many terms are coined for the occasions simply many related phenomenon exist without having been properly named yet. By doing so it tries to capture the latest skyscraper (related) trends, but also to create awareness for often overlooked but important details.

The Skyscraper Dictionary was created by Jan Klerks, founder of the Web forum SkyscraperCity, the urban sharing app Urbie and Web log
