Research theme: Vertical Net Structures [DRX 2013]

Date: 23.07.2013

Tutor: Agata Kycia

Location: HENN, Berlin, DE

Description: The workshop introduces recent developments and tendencies in the design of tall buildings to the DRX 2013 researchers. Through a series of lectures, Agata highlights the critical aspects in the design of tall buildings, focusing on their structural performance.

The workshop introduces recent developments and tendencies in the design of tall buildings to the DRX 2013 researchers.

The workshop is divided into two parts. The first familiarizes the participants with the existing structural systems commonly used in the design of tall buildings throughout history, for example, rigid frame structures, rigid frame + core, core+ outrigger, perimeter and hybrid structures.

The second part focuses on the characteristics of height-active structures due to their extension in height and susceptibility to horizontal loading. An emphasis was placed on understanding these height-active structures as integrated systems in a complex stress condition, as well as their ability to collect the loads, redirect them to the ground and provide lateral stabilization. Redirecting horizontal loads to the ground, as one of the crucial features of high-rise structures, may even become the form defining element in the design of tall buildings.

The workshop concludes with an explanation of the Prototower designed during the DRX 2012, published and presented during the Tensinet Symposium at the Mimar Sinan Fine-Art University in Istanbul.
