The shape of a tall tower and how it interacts with the wind is an integral part of its structural design. The internal structural form is also typically governed by movement considerations of lateral sway and axial shortening. This presentation covers the fundamentals of tall building structural design and construction applied to the Brisbane Sky Tower project.
