Session 4E: CITIC Tower – Innovative Design and Technology Discussion

9 April 2019
3:45 PM – 5:15 PM

The steady pace of development in fields as diverse as digital design, fabrication, damping and façade engineering opens up great opportunities to push the boundaries of tall buildings’ potential. However, at the same time, the barrage of new technology and the complexity of designs creates daunting complications, especially as time and money constraints have not slackened to allow more experimentation “on the job.” A diverse group of senior panelists from the development, architecture, engineering, construction and cladding-supplier communities have an enlightening discussion around the potential for innovation, technology and tall buildings to fruitfully intertwine.
