Thread Name: BS: How high can a brick building go?
Subject: RE: BS: How high can a brick building go?
We really need to get to the definition of a building here. Is a solid pyramid a building or just a shaped pile? As mentioned, the Flatiron building has an iron skeleton. If the building is all brick, how many doors and windows and of what dimensions. In the NYC building code, rooms must have windows to be counted as rooms. There are too many variables being left undefined here.
