The Urban Towers Handbook includes 30 in-depth case studies of iconic towers from around the world, organized according to type.
These range from historic examples, such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Chrysler Building in New York, and the medieval tower houses of San Gimignano in Tuscany, to highly contemporary examples, such as the Burj Al Arab in Dubai and the Roppogni Hills in Tokyo.
In addition, each case study features one or two further examples of contemporary projects that share a similar urban configuration.
