Tall Buildings: A Strategic Design Guide is an authoritative guide to the key issues and considerations associated with planning, creating and living with tall buildings. Thoroughly reworked to reflect industry developments and experiences gained over the last ten years, this second edition imparts the advice and knowledge of more than 20 highly respected industry specialists. Key topics include: urban design and place-making; design, engineering and construction; the role of BIM; construction economics; and the all-important matter of legacy – including the challenges of adaptation and demolition. A greater focus on international examples is also introduced, reflecting the fact that regions such as Asia and the Middle East are now dominating the tall-buildings scene.
