Discovery-owned Science Channel is spotlighting some of the world’s most gravity-defying skyline designs in the upcoming series Skyscrapers: Engineering The Future.

The six-episode series produced by WildBear Entertainment looks at how ambitious cities worldwide are transforming their skylines with breathtaking buildings. Since their inception in the late 19th century, skyscrapers have continuously evolved as architects and structural engineers continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

From Chicago to London, Melbourne to Tokyo, each episode of Skyscrapers: Engineering The Future¬†gives audiences a never-before-seen look at such mammoth structures as the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai; Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands hotel; and London’s The Shard, the tallest building in the UK, among others.

Serge Ou serves as series executive producer for WildBear. Lindsey Foster Blumberg is supervising producer for Science Channel.

Skyscrapers: Engineering The Future premieres April 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel.

Ahead of the premiere episode of Engineering The Future, the net will air the two-hour special World’s Greatest Skyscrapers at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
