Tall Building Design Exploration: Designing For Wind Resilience

8 pagesPublished: October 23, 2017

Abstract

The paper presents a performance-based design method that combines building and urban objectives for the control of winds impacting on tall buildings at the pedestrian, podium and upper levels. The performance-based method accounts for wind flow and wind load in a form optimization technique that considers a variety of criteria defining urban microclimates, defined by high-density, multi-level building forms subject to acute variations in seasonal wind conditions. The approach is based on the theoretical foundations of ‘designing for urban resilience; and highlights the different objectives of this approach relative to existing (tall) building design standards and urban city planning guidelines.

Keyphrases: Form optimization, Performance-based tall building design, urban microclimate, urban resilience, Wind Flow, wind load
