About the Show

Vertical City returns with a brand new series, taking a high rise hike around more of the globe’s most iconic skyscrapers, seeing these potent symbols of ambition and wealth from a new perspective. Scaling the tallest towers across the world from China to Boston to Moscow, architects Charlie Luxton and new presenter Matt Berman leave the bustling streets below to see these extravagant buildings from great heights and unique perspectives. Guided by the world’s bravest window washers, Vertical City rediscovers some of the boldest and most ambitious examples of architecture; from the ancient and historic to the recent and the risky. Painting an intimate portrait of each tower by meeting the people who have a special relationship with it – from the office workers to window washers to those who carry out repairs on them, Vertical City reveals the hidden secrets of ten super-towers.
