Tall: the design and construction of high-rise architecture, Paperback / softback Book

Tall: the design and construction of high-rise architecture Paperback / softback

Edited by Guy (Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand) Marriage

Paperback / softback

Description

This is a guide to both the basics and the details of tall building design, delving into the rudimentary aspects of design that an architect of a tall office building must consider, as well as looking at the rationale for why and how a building must be built the way it is.

Liberally illustrated with clear, simple black and white illustrations showing how the building structure and details can be built, this book greatly assists the reader in their understanding of the building process for a modern office tower.

It breaks down the building into three main components: the structure, the core and the facade, writing about them and illustrating them in a simple-to-understand manner.

By focusing on the nuts and bolts of real-life design and construction, it provides a practical guide and desk-reference to any architect or architecture student embarking on a tall building project.
