This book, the result of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat 6th World Congress: Cities in the Third Millennium, examines the issues which must be addressed if we are to have a common understanding of the forces of change. Experts in architecture, engineering and planning contribute a commentary on the existing condition of urban design, sociology and tall buildings, and expand the boundaries of new construction and engineering technology.

tenant is looming in importance. The owner is having more influence on the building. As Gerald D. Hines has said, there are indications that the desire for more discretionary time will lead to more residential high-rises dose to or in the midst of downtown office buildings. Downtown living could become the desired alternative. Tall buildings will be approached increasingly from the standpoint of an urban ecology - that what happens to apart can influence the whole. Provid ing for public as well as private needs in a tall building project is just one example (facilities for schools, shops, religious, and other needs). More attention will be paid to maintaining streets as lively and interesting places. Will a new "world's tallest" be built? Will we go a mile high? The answer is probably "yes" to the first, "no" to the second. With the recent spate of super-tall buildings on the drawing boards, going to greater heights was in the back of many people's minds at the Chicago conference. But in the U nited States, at least, buildings of 70 to 80 stories would appear to provide needed space consistent with economy. The future, then, is described in depth by papers that go into specific areas.

Since the skyscraper's humble beginnings as a 10-story building in Chicago, more than 100 years ago, the super-tall building has been a source of wonder for the layman, and of inspiration, innovation, and fierce competition for architects, engineers, contractors, and the countless others involved with the complex challenge of constructing increasingly higher buildings. Originally built predominantly as stand-alone office buildings, super-tall skyscrapers have evolved into vertical cities, which are often part of a larger urban plan, with most new examples incorporating a mix of uses including residential, hotel, retail, entertainment, and leisure facilities. This book is a fully illustrated snapshot of 101 of today's tallest buildings from around the world. The next wave of super-tall buildings is so impressive that a selection of projects currently under construction is presented in the second part of the book.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has produced four Technical Guides to date, since the series launched in late 2012. Each of these guides is the product of a CTBUH Working Group—committees formed specifically to address focused topical subjects in the industry. The intention of each guide is the same—to provide working knowledge to the typical building owner or professional who wants a better understanding of available options for improving tall buildings, and what affects their design. The object of the series is to provide a tool-kit for the creation of better-performing tall buildings, and to spread the understanding of the considerations that need to be made in designing tall. This technical guide offers an extensive overview of the use of vertical vegetation in high-rise buildings, an indepth analysis of green walls, definitions and typology, including standards, policies and incentives. It features comprehensive case studies, along with architectural theories of the public and private benefits of green walls. The book delves into architect-design considerations and limitations, the effects of green walls on energy efficiencies and includes recommendations and future research.

Examines different classes of loads to which tall buildings are subjected, thereby aiming to give a precise definition of the related structural requirements that are necessary before a client's needs can be translated into a safe design. This book also explores quality control and over-all safety considerations and probabilistic methods.
