Stephan Reinke of Woods Bagot discussed the design of tall buildings in the early part of the 21st Century at the CTBUH 8th World Congress in Dubai. He emphasized that present tall building architecture is not necessarily being informed by day lighting, net to gross ratios, utilisation or flexibility for a multiplicity of occupants and tenants but by the idea of creating an identity; a brand which generates powerful imagery in the cityscape relating to a specific organization or corporation. In essence, an iconic shape supersedes a well-planned and rational, residence, hotel or workplace.
