Thornton Tomasetti, Chicago presents at the 2010 Mumbai Conference. There are many challenges and opportunities in designing the structure and skin of high performing tall buildings. Examples from different regions highlight responses to wind effects, building movements and tolerances. BIM Modeling is a new tool to assist in evaluating performance and sustainability, as well as assist in constructability. All of these suggest new areas of research to improve the performance and sustainability of tall buildings, which were included in this presentation from a structural engineer / architect with over 30 years expertise in the design of tall buildings.
