The Design Strategy of Functional Efficient Curved Figure Super High-Rise Building

Yu Wang
Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tsinghua University, Beijing

This presentation explored the corresponding design strategies of skyscrapers curved figures. It discussed the stacked functions in a single building and presented the methods of how curved figures can adapt functions by battering shapes and changing plan outlines. It also addressed the technical problems of curtain walls and how an iterative algorithm can be used in the optimization of the curved figure form-findings. By taking Zhuhai Hengqin International Finance Center and Guangxi Nanning ASEAN Tower as two on-going project examples, the presentation concluded that curved figure strategies can benefit super high-rise building design.
