The Future of Tall is a collection of written works from the CTBUH 2015 New York Conference, which provide a glimpse of the many advances that are under development or already implemented in skyscrapers around the world. Inside you’ll see how buildings are getting smarter, with integrated systems that allow them to operate autonomously, or how the evolution of vertical transportation will optimize the flow of people in a building and enable the creation of entirely new architectural forms. Additionally, discover the new techniques that will drastically change how we build and demolish skyscrapers.
Note: This publication was produced in conjunction with the CTBUH 2015 New York Conference, which took place at the Grand Hyatt New York from 26–30 October, 2015, as an additional supplement to the Main Proceedings book alongside two other Theme Room publications, Asia & Australasia and The Middle East.
