Skyscrapers About This Site

A demonstration of ProcessWire

This site provides a collection of skyscrapers in the United States and enables you to browse them by city, architect and various other factors. While much of the skyscraper data should be accurate, it is not necessarily comprehensive, up-to-date or complete. This site was built to serve as a demonstration of ProcessWire in addition to providing insight into US skyscrapers.

This site is not intended to be a model of good design nor is it attempting to push any envelopes. Instead, the site was intentionally kept quick and simple in the way it's designed/developed to best function as a demonstration of ProcessWire. While the scale and functionality of this site is fairly basic, this site will continue to expand for demonstration purposes.

This site uses the Uikit CSS framework. Consistent with keeping things as simple as possible, we're using the default CSS output of Uikit with very little modification.

About the skyscraper data

The skyscraper data is compiled and imported from information available at both Freebase and Wikipedia. The data has since been populated further to fill gaps in several fields like height, floors, and year. Currently there are still several gaps in the data, especially with regard to architects and missing buildings. However, the data is complete enough to be useful in a CMS demo context. But if you are looking for accurate and up-to-date information about Skyscrapers (rather than a demo of ProcessWire) then this is probably not the right site for that.
