Tall buildings give form to human aspirations for the past two centuries, they have served as powerfull expressions of our creativity, knowledge and will. They are symbols of their time and place as people around the world gravitate towards urban cores, how will our big cities continue to add density while preserving vital open spaces? The cities of the future will ultimately have just one direction too grow up.
Historically, tall structures were the preserve of great rulers, religions and empires. For instance, the Great Pyramid of Giza – built to house the tomb of Pharaoh Khufu – once towered over 145 metres high. It was the tallest man-made structure for nearly 4,000 years, before being overtaken by the 160-metre-tall Lincoln Cathedral in the 14th century. Other edifices, such as Tibet’s Potala Palace (the traditional home of the Dalai Lama), or the monasteries of Athos were constructed atop mountains or rocky outcrops, to bring them even closer to the heavens.
Yet these grand historical efforts are dwarfed by the skyscrapers of the 20th and 21st centuries. London’s Shard looms at 310 metres tall at its fractured tip – but it’s made to look small by the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, which stands at more than 828 metres. And both these behemoths will be left in the shadows by the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah. Originally planned by architect Adrian Smith to reach 1,600 metres, the tower is now likely to reach one kilometre high, once it’s completed in 2020.
Pakistan is an emerging economy on the world ap. The future needs of accommodating progressive demands of this time will require the newer archtecture to be sensitive of the limited urban space challenges by going vertical. This pose a need to learn about new innovations in building high rise structures. The corporate and coomerce development rely on the efficient design of their buildings.
