Many of the most recognizable tall buildings dotting our skylines are more than 50 years old. How do we ensure these icons remain operable, profitable and vital to our cities for years to come? When does it make sense to tear down and build anew?
Beginning with rapid-fire presentations and ending in a moderated discussion, our panel of design, engineering, and development experts reveals the most successful and sustainable approaches to re-positioning tall buildings in our dense urban centers. This is the latest installment of our Building Tall lecture series, hosted by the CAC and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). This series uncovers everything from the physics to the financials of how skyscrapers work and feature diverse groups of experts from the architecture, engineering, urban planning and real estate development fields.
