why have cities with big office buildings?

Update:

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?

Update 2:

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.
