Werner Sobek Presents on Engineering High-Rises for Sustainable Cities

11 June 2013

High-rise buildings make an important contribution in the design of sustainable cities – provided they are planned accordingly and with a holistic perspective. In this context, the design of structural systems and façades make a vital contribution. In this presentation, from one of the world’s most distinguished engineers, we see selected research and completed projects demonstrating how we can not only use significantly less materials and energy, but also achieve a considerable rise in user comfort and functionality through innovative design concepts. The resulting buildings are truly sustainable – especially when taking into consideration their whole life-cycle.
