Will the Leaning Tower of Pisa Fall Over?

Will the Leaning Tower of Pisa Fall Over?

I remember my trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa - I must have been about 3 or 4 and when my legs got too tired, my Dad simply picked me up and carried me the rest of the way to the top - in a 'fireman's lift'.  My laughing and screeching no doubt...

Fortunately it doesn't get really, really cold in Pisa, but the chill factor in December (average low 3 degrees C) must have an effect Lada 🏡 Prkic

But on the contrary, the cold weather causes the stones to compress and increases the tilt.

Why Round Buildings are Better

Why Round Buildings are Better

I've been doing some research into Resilient Housing, right from the start I was convinced that a round house would be the way to go.  Our Ancestors often built round houses - take Igloos, Teepees, African Mud Brick Huts, Yurts and European...

Thanks Lada, I agree - round buildings make perfect sense - especially for skyscrapers!

Hi Claire, it's a great topic. As you illustrated under point 8, by fusing outer circle with orthogonal internal walls, we can facilitate constructibility. I am also interested in the circular shape when it comes to high-rise buildings. The tendency in high-rise construction is in even taller skyscrapers, which makes building more exposed to wind loads. The circular shape with adaptive envelope seems to be the most logical for different wind directions.

The Architectural Process of 3D Walkthrough Animation

The world of 3D Walkthrough Animation has come a long way since its inception. What most of the people would recall the word animation is probably cartoons and low graphics games. But the inroads that it has made in architecture and construction are...
