Synopsis

As the ever-changing skylines of cities all over the world show, tall buildings are an increasingly important solution to accommodating growth more sustainably in today's urban areas. Whether it is residential, a workplace or mixed use, the tower is both a statement of intent and the defining image for the new global city.





The Tall Buildings Reference Book addresses all the issues of building tall, from the procurement stage through the design and construction process to new technologies and the building's contribution to the urban habitat. A case study section highlights the latest, the most innovative, the greenest and the most inspirational tall buildings being constructed today.





A team of over fifty experts in all aspects of building tall have contributed to the making of the Tall Buildings Reference Book, creating an unparalleled source of information and inspiration for architects, engineers and developers.

Dave Parker was Technical Editor of New Civil Engineer magazine for 12 years before leaving in May 2006 to become a freelance author and journalist. His interests include microgeneration and structural safety, and he successfully campaigned for the setting-up of the CROSS confidential reporting scheme in the UK. Antony Wood is Executive Director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat and an Associate Professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture. His field of specialism is the sustainable design of tall buildings. His PhD explored the multi-disciplinary aspects of skybridge connections between tall buildings.
