The best way to understand the array of complexities inherent in supertall skyscrapers is through case study examples. This session embraces three unique towers from around the world, exploring reinforced concrete diagrids in New York’s 53 West 53rd, structural considerations in Wuhan’s CTF Finance Centre, and design adaptations in Moscow’s Neva Towers complex.
