Facts

  • The superstructure stem comprises concentric braced steel lattices linked at intermediate levels with radial frames.
  • The double curved form is inherently rigid and the minimal use of material is achieved by optimising section sizes with a suitable search algorithm.
  • The even flow of forces through the superstructure hull is directed into the base level transfer structure using a hierarchy of member sizes arranged according to Myron Goldsmith's superframe concept for very tall buildings.
  • Photovoltaic cells are integrated into the façade.
