Council on Tall Buildings & Urban Habitat | Skybridges: Bringing the Horizontal into the Vertical Realm
As many architects and visionaries have shown over a period spanning more than a century, the re-creation of the urban realm in the sky through connections between buildings at height has a vast potential for the enrichment of our cities. As the world rapidly urbanizes, greater thought needs to be expended on how horizontal space can be developed at height. Today, new transportation technology, and structural engineering practices seem to put horizontal habitat in the sky within reach. But cultural, organizational, and jurisdictional obstacles remain. To overcome these, a solid case needs to be made for the extensive benefits of skybridges in a much wider application than has been seen historically.
Join CTBUH for a special half-day Symposium at one of the world’s most significant skybridge-linked projects, Beijing’s Linked Hybrid, the recipient of the CTBUH 10 Year Award in 2019, kindly hosted by Modern Land. Presentations will be given by some of the leading practitioners of skybridge projects around the world, and some of the enabling technologies that will take 3-D cities to the next level in the near future. Hear from the CTBUH research team engaged in an 18-month research project, kindly sponsored by thyssenkrupp, to determine the state of the art in skybridges and sketch a future vision of how these remarkable structures can add a new dimension to vertical urbanism.
