High-rises: landmarks of economic and symbolic significance
Opinions about high-rises are polarized: you either love ’em or loathe ’em. These urban towers certainly prompt heated debate, be it about their cost-effectiveness, ratio of gross to net floor space, sustainability or their impact on the urban skyline.
Not surprisingly these prominent projects were once again an important topic at BAU in 2015. Our BAU FLASHBACK video sums up some of the key points in this debate. Which side of this are you on? And: What aspects/views did we miss out? We look forward to reading your input.
