Architecture is an important sign of civilization, both in the real world and the fictional ones.  Tall tower buildings take a special position as physical symbols of technological abilities, power, and create a futuristic setting.  These iconographical meanings are also seen in fantasy, often combined with historicized architecture.  We will discuss the genealogy of visualized futuristic architecture over the centuries.
