Structural Systems for Tallest Buildings and Their Applications
Tall buildings that began from about 10-story tall office towers in the late 19th century have evolved into mixed-use megatall towers over 150 stories. Structural systems have been one of the most fundamental technologies for the dramatic developments of tall buildings. This paper presents structural systems employed for the world’s tallest buildings of different periods since the emergence of supertall buildings in the 1930s and their applications for contemporary supertall and megatall buildings.
