why have cities with big office buildings?
everyone working from home and getting more work done? why drive all the way to a downtown area to work in an office? is it a social event or something more sinister like a psychological rat maze for the elites to entertain themselves watching?
why companies pay for employees if they can get machines or computers to do jobs cheaper, faster than their employees can? If not better?

One reason is space. Tall buildings make up for the shortage of land and allow more people, and activity, to be in a relatively small area.

Because the city mouse needs a place to hang his shingle.

So they can look down at the little people and gloat. Feel powerful and alive. And I agree we should all work from home.

More of a big question than answers.
Construction of more bigger and better buildings can
be seen as action that says, "look we can build bigger
and better than the previous culture. It's not just our
philosophy we can plan it and do it too.
And yes these structure's come to be owed by those
with AN INTEREST IN THE STATUS QUO, in this
case big off office buildings.
And a new Environment which has at it's heart
a reduction in hardware like such big buildings
is philosophically very different to the present
frenzy and status over these CO2 producing
monoliths. A philosophy which is already here
and socially active planning ahead.
