Synopsis:

Like once the main towers of the cathedrals, skyscrapers are the dominant landmarks in the cityscape of today and thereby one of the most prestigious building assignments of creative architects. The design freedom of the contour and the plastic volume of the blob have long since superseded the purely orthogonal towers of the past. A global view to the most significant projects of recent years and the most spectacular towers still under construction as well as path breaking experimental sketches are presented by means of texts, planning material and illustrations. Comprehensive tables give the most important performance markers and provide information about the central subjects specific to this type of building, such as vertical development, safety and energy concepts.

Book Description Braun Publishing, 2012. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut - ungelesen, sehr gut, u.U. leichte Mängel am Schnitt oder Einband, Mängelexemplar - Wolkenkratzer sind seit dem 20. Jahrhundert, wie früher die Fassadentürme der Kathedralen, die das Stadtbild prägende Fixpunkte und seit der Jahrtausendwende wieder eine der prestigeträchtigsten und begehrtesten Bauaufgaben. Längst sind die rein orthogonalen Türme überwunden, haben sich die kreative Freiheit der Kontur und das plastische Volumen des Blobs auch hier durchgesetzt. Die meisten Skyscraper werden im arabisch-asiatischen Raum realisiert, wie der Burj Khalifa in Dubai, das höchste Gebäude der Welt. Doch werden auch in den USA, dem Mutterland des Wolkenkratzers, neue Türme errichtet. Und auch in Europa wird überall in die Höhe gebaut. Neben den bedeutendsten Projekten dieser Wolkenkratzer-Renaissance präsentiert dieser Band die spektakulärsten noch im Bau befindlichen Türme sowie zukunftsweisende experimentelle Entwürfe. Aus dem Inhalt: World Trade Center in New York, USA (Daniel Libeskind / SOM) Poly Plaza in Shanghai, China (gmp) Turning Torso in Malmö, Schweden (Santiago Calatrava) Doha High-Rise Office Building, Katar (Ateliers Jean-Nouvel) Sunrise Tower in Kuapa Lumpur, Malaysia (Zaha Hadid Architects) 456 pp. Englisch.
