Session 3C: Designing the Skybridge: Connecting Skyscrapers

21 October 2018

The skybridge is moving beyond mere circulation. Today one can find swimming pools, residences, meeting rooms, basketball courts and much more, suspended between buildings, high in the sky. How has the evolution of skybridges taken us to this point? What are the emerging standards of design for horizontal urban habitat at height?
