Overview

Architecture’s leading thinkers and practitioners examine both the global phenomenon of the tall building and its adaptation to the Asian-Pacific context in this detailed case study. The evershifting profile of modern cities, coupled with a lack of comprehensive city planning, pose important architectural and aesthetic questions about towers' effects on culture and historic city centers. Pressing concerns about environmental sustainability and building economics are also addressed in this strikingly designed book, which draws on a diverse array of examples, including the Dong Towers of Southern China, high-rise housing in Hong Kong and Australia, and the iconic towers of Seidler, PTW, Foster, Koolhaas, Mayne and Ingenhoven & Architectus.
