80. A LIVING OR SMART BUILDING: THE GUANGZHOU TOWER

This paper presents the evolution of the structural design of one of the tallest structures in the world. The architectural design was developed by Mehrdad Yazdani at Cannon Design Group. The basic architectural vision of the Guangzhou Tower is three twisting interconnected legs. The architectural plan at each level of the tower rotates and twists. The basic structural vision here is of a Living Structure that can be adapted and improved from a structural engineering perspective as new high-tech products become available, as our understanding of the forces of nature improves using ground and aerial instrumentation and as we improve the accuracy of our structural modeling to estimate structural response to wind and earthquake loading.
