Innovation was the focus of a workshop session led by Senior Managing Director Mehdi Jalayerian and High Performance Buildings Studio Leader Tyler Jensen during a recent conference sponsored by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). (Learn more about stack effect.)
As the continent containing the most skyscrapers above 150 meters, each new high-rise in Asia must compete within a landscape of tall, supertall and megatall buildings – each of which demands more efficient performance benchmarks than the last.
Tyler Jensen will lead the panel discussion “High-Performance Buildings in Asia” during the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) World Congress in Chicago on Tuesday, Oct. 29. The discussion will include case-study references to several contemporary high-performance buildings in Asia, and it will break down some of the technical features that allow these buildings to conserve water, mitigate stack effect, optimize airflow and conduct other strategies – even at incredible heights.
