In the Stories Behind the Storeys: Arup’s Tall Buildings in Asia, we present the latest developments in the field to inspire more innovative and sustainable ideas in tall building design and engineering, through a series of detailed case studies.
These stories are told directly from project engineers, who explain how to come up with innovative solutions to tackle complicated engineering challenges throughout the design process.
This book exhibits the key design aspects of tall buildings in 20 case studies, from mainland China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Japan. The chapters cover design and construction, safety concerns, sustainability strategies, BIM and optimisation solutions. The projects chosen have been selected for their significant engineering insights.
These varied and complex cases studies draw on multidisciplinary design and engineering challenges which make this book an essential reference for architects, structural engineers, project managers and researchers of high-rise buildings.
