Tall: the design and construction of high-rise architecture
"Skyscraper design has emerged as one of the most important and most complex tasks facing builders today. Tall: the design and construction of high-rise architecture explains how skyscrapers are conceived, designed, and built in remarkably clear prose, breaking down their economic and technical requirements into lucid chapters. Along the way, Guy Marriage presents a readily accessible guide to building structures, materials, economics, and finishes, covering the whole life of a tall building from its conception to its disassembly. Tall: the design and construction of high-rise architecture is an important addition for students and practitioners in a range of fields, from engineering and architecture to finance and facilities management, and makes for an essential companion for anyone navigating the tightly integrated systems and spaces of a skyscraper in design or construction." Thomas Leslie, FAIA, Iowa State University/Northwestern University "Regardless of where an architect or engineer is in his or her career, this is an essential guide to building tall and, most importantly, to doing so successfully."
