Super Tall (and Super Cool) Buildings in Asia [N45A]

With more tall buildings exceeding 500 meters, a new age of mega tall buildings has begun and introduces a new level of design challenges. The Ping An Finance Center (PAFC) will be one of the tallest towers in China and this presentation will touch on shape optimization for the building and how a comprehensive structural analysis lead to a more sustainable project. In addition, the presentation will highlight the unique attributes of the VietinBank Business Centre Complex in Hanoi, Vietnam, which features two towers (including a 360-meter-tall office building), focusing on its shape: an equilateral triangle in plan with a sharply sloped roof and full-height atriums.
