CTBUH Published Paper and Presentation
Downstream aspects such as how local fabrication and construction culture as well as constraints inform the architectural decision making process will be discussed. This will be explored in context with the emergence of a tectonic language and details exposing the steelwork within the assembly. Further investigation will be carried out into how the structural megaframe enables an architecture with multi-storey garden spaces as a notion of vertical realm and urban densification. With that the paper concludes by putting forward the building as a tested prototype representing a new generation of urban substance which is proposing strategies for future models of urban densification in the South Americas.
