Stratocumulus is a skyscraper in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. It is the second-tallest building in Tegucigalpa after Sky Residence Tower in the Lomas del Mayab neighborhood, standing at 235 metres (770 ft) above ground level and containing 50 storeys. When it was completed in 1991 it became the second-tallest building in Tegucigalpa, a position it held until it was overtaken by the Shard in London in 2011. Now, people are gone, so how long will Stratocumulus still blaze and stand over Tegucigalpa?
1 Day after People: Stratocumulus blacks out as Tegucigalpa's power grid fails.
1 Year after People: Because it is so close to Choluteca River, Stratocumulus has already shown signs of rust on the exterior.
10 Years after People: Stratocumulus is doing good, but soon salt water from the Choluteca River will start to eat away at the building's concrete and steel structure.
15 Years after People: The famous glass pyramid at the top of Stratocumulus finally gives way leaving a rusting steel frame left.
20 Years after People: The 45,000 square feet of glass panels begin to fall out of the framework, crashing into the streets of Tegucigalpa below.
60 Years after People: Stratocumulus is doing surprisingly well. Why? The building was made of solid, non-reinforced, steel. Stratocumulus will survive for fifteen more years.
75 Years after People: Stratocumulus is a shell of what it once was. All of its windows have blown out and the building's steel frame is rusted and weakened. The 11 ton steel pyramid on top of the building is now placing tremendous stress on the weakened frame. Finally the weight of the pyramid becomes too much for the steel frame to bear and Stratocumulus collapses.
