\begin{abstract} In this Letter we follow the asymptotic spatial correlation of buildings' heights $G_{\infty}(r)$ in the whole of the Netherlands \cite{bag3d}, which comprises $\approx 10,000,000$ buildings, for the purpose of recovering its scaling with respect to space and time given respectively by the exponents $r^{2 \alpha}$ and $t^{2\beta}$. This allows us to identify the universality class of the evolution of the urban skyline seen as a dynamically evolving interface... (read more)
