      To have a skyscraper you need really strong metal which can stand up to strong winds and will be strong enough not to bend.
      If you get a piece of tin foil you can crumble it up in your hand, if it made a skyscraper the wind would blew it down (Reminds me of the three pigs and the wolf).
      You wouldn’t be able to have any furniture or people in the building too as the floor would rip, like tin foil does!
