Since the dawn of humanity, every great work, every remarkable achievement, howsoever challenging, began in the mind of one person and has been reached through holding to the vision.
No matter if it was the vision to identify and resolve technical obstacles to the construction of a flying machine, or the vision to exceed limits of previous generations and set new limits in architecture by achieving breakthroughs in design, construction methods and technology: The drive to go tall, and build ever-higher skyscrapers with no limiting core, reflects the courage of the people to believe in innovative visions and pursue them passionately.
