While the Hanking Center Tower offers its tenants a unique place to work, it also offered its structural engineers a unique challenge. This presentation will offer a basic understanding of the structural engineering challenges posed by the offset core as well as the creative structural solutions that were able to achieve Morphosis’ vision for the tower in an efficient and constructible way.
