The article presents selected issues related to shaping glass facades in high buildings. Attention was paid to the problem of choice of solutions due to the interdisciplinary nature of the elevation, which on the one hand is an element shaping the architecture of a skyscraper, on the other hand constitutes an exterior walls meeting a number of technical and utility requirements. The façade solutions were analyzed in selected skyscrapers completed in Europe after 2010.
