The Tall Buildings Reference Book



That there is a need for this book is indisputable. The tall building typology has witnessed more rapid growth in the past two decades than in the preceding hundred years, and yet the vast majority of current books on the subject fall into the glossy, coffee-table book category— high on image, low on content, especially technical
content. 

All aspects of tall buildings—form and architectural design, relationship to urban habitat, structural systems, elevatoring techniques, construction methods, environmental strategies, attitudes towards facades— have seen major development in the first decade of the twenty-first century, and thus this book is more than just timely in its intended capture of the “state of the art”; it is absolutely necessary.

The boom in tall building construction over the past decade or so is unprecedented in the history of mankind. Although there have been intense periods of tall building construction in specific geographic areas throughout history—late nineteenth-century Chicago, art deco New York, or post–Second World War Europe, for example—the boom of the 1990s and 2000s has reached across virtually the entire globe—from Brisbane to Beijing, Rio to Riyadh, Toronto to Tokyo. It seems that almost all cities globally have been developing their urban habitat skyward.
