About this product
- DescriptionTall buildings are oftentimes the subject of admiration only for their sheer height or skyline silhouette, and oftentimes criticised for their poor environmental performance (and t without justification). This book aims to change that impression by showing invations that are particular to tall buildings, in addition to generally good architectural design and engineering prowess.
- Author BiographyAntony Wood has been Executive Director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat since 2006. Based at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Antony is a Research Professor in the College of Architecture and is also a Visiting Professor of Tall Buildings at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning at Tongji University, Shanghai. He is the author and editor of numerous books and papers in the field, and his PhD explored the multi-disciplinary aspects of skybridge connections between tall buildings. Californian-born Steven Henry received his degree in architecture in May 2008 from the College of Architecture of the Illinois Institute of Technology. In his final years he studied new programmatic uses for high-rise buildings as well as research on how to incorporate sustainable features as an inherent part of the design. Involved with the CTBUH since January 2008, he designed and produced the Council's inaugural awards book titled, Best Tall Buildings 2008: CTBUH International Awards Winning Projects. Among other tasks, he continues to coordinate the council's book publications.
