The Tall Buildings website is eccentric and endearing, a bit like its subject matter. I explored for a long time. It felt like rifling through an old filing cabinet, and finding hidden gems of information, while somehow still feeling very intuitive. The site brings personality and artistry into the user experience. Visually, the idea of verticality comes to life through stacking and layering. Imagery is used to great effect to convey a sense of tallness. Every aspect of the design and writing adds to the site’s slightly offbeat personality. At one point the site asks the question: Why don’t people like tall buildings? Now, I honestly don’t know.
