Özet

As a result of physical, social and economic needs, demand for tall buildings is increasing worldwide. Due to their great size and large impacts on urban environment, tall buildings,, have the potential to improve the quality around them through careful design and urban integration. When compared with lower buildings, tall buildings can be more challenging by means of architectural design and engineering details. Also, depending on their large area of influence, design considerations regarding sustainability and environmental integration of tall buildings need to be handled with more care than other conventional buildings in order to provide the most positive impact.
