New transportation technologies, and relatively new structural engineering practices, put significant horizontal urban habitat in the sky within reach. But cultural, organizational, and jurisdictional obstacles remain. At the Skybridges Symposium, witness the technologies, case studies, and prospective applications of skybridges in tall buildings and cities of the future.
The public imagination has long theorized on how integrated technologies can make our lives easier, but the coming wave of innovation takes this line of thinking to the next level. At the Smart Tall Buildings Symposium, discover the technologies and digital infrastructure posed to change how tall buildings engage with, learn from, and respond to human activity.
The evolution of tall building façades is occurring at a rapid pace – more than any other period in history – resulting in a constant stream of new technologies, systems, and approaches. These innovations, while varied and diverse, speak to the importance of façades not only for the advancement of the tall building typology, but the betterment of human habitation in all forms.
