Special Issue in Buildings: Sustainable Tall Building Developments and the 21st Century City
Our cities continue to face numerous challenges: climate change, rapid population increase, demographic shifts, and, recently, COVID-19. Of course, there is a tremendous volume of literature that examines each of the above; however, there are fewer studies that address the role of vertical developments in promoting or demoting urban sustainability. This Special Issue will focus on the various architectural and urban planning aspects that are critical to ensure sustainable vertical developments. It will examine pioneering architectural design, creative site planning, innovative engineering, and promising spatial patterns of both existing and emerging high-rise global cities. Related urban topics will include walkability, mixed-use schemes, tourism, cultural vibrancy, transport accessibility, environmental considerations, and the organization of buildings in relation to public spaces and amenities. Importantly, tall buildings in relation to the mass-transit network are seen to be crucial to the sustainability of a high-rise city. Collectively, this SI will shed light on recent architectural and urban developments and provide guidance on the design and planning of future vertical cities.
