Here is the first paragraph from a new article in Fortune magazine, the full version of which is available only to Fortune subscribers:
“Please listen carefully, Mr. Roark,” newspaper mogul Gail Wynand instructs the architect hero of Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel, The Fountainhead. “I wish to undertake the construction of the Wynand Building at once. I wish it to be the tallest structure of the city.”
The article is accompanied by a photo essay of some impressive skyscrapers.
