This symposium was kindly sponsored by Otis Elevator Company, the world’s leading manufacturer and maintainer of people-moving products, including elevators, escalators and moving walkways. Founded in 1853, by the inventor of the safety elevator, Otis offers products and services through its companies in approximately 200 countries and territories. As the history of the skyscraper is closely linked to the history of the elevator, Otis has a deep interest in scholarship around the origins of the skyscraper and the progress of architectural and engineering advancements through time.

Otis is a unit of United Technologies Corp., a leading provider to the aerospace and building systems industries worldwide. By combining a passion for science with precision engineering, the company is creating smart, sustainable solutions the world needs.
