The engineering behind tall buildings allows towering structures to stay steady despite strong winds, seismic shifts and pelting rains through a series of innovative and elegant approaches that are developing at a startling pace. Tuned mass damping continues to become more compact – without yielding any of its equalizing effects – while boundary-pushing structural approaches enable skyscrapers to approach the kilometer mark in height. This panel discussion among industry experts and engineers asks the question “What Makes for Innovative Tall Building Engineering?” in a comprehensive overview of recent history’s greatest engineering achievements, and the ways they will affect our skylines.
