Description

What constitutes a high-rise building? A high-rise is, in fact, any building with more than nine storeys and not just those striking skyscrapers which shape modern city skylines. In the past architects who designed such structures used to be the exception but in the last 10 years more and more architectural offices have begun to focus on this type of building. However, the sheer complexity of designing and planning the construction of a high-rise as opposed to other building types requires a wealth of specialised experience and expertise.The 'High-Rise Manual' is the first comprehensive reference work on this subject. All relevant aspects of such an undertaking are examined in detail by some 25 specialist authors. Each step is extensively documented including the initial project planning, the building organisation, the laying of the foundations, the supporting structure, the building technology, the office design, and the facility management. Theoretical contributions present the basic principles of selected topics revealing how the task is viewed from the different perspectives. With countless illustrations, plans, and CAD drawings, this volume highlights the basic principles and details vital in building high-rise structures.The editors, professor Johann Eisele and engineer Ellen Kloft, teach in the Department for Design and Architecture at the Technical University of Darmstadt, and lead an interdisciplinary working group on high-rise building.
