Sky High Living: Contemporary High-rise Apartment (Tall Buildings)


Description:

There are many books about tall buildings, but few focus exclusively on residential high-rises. Perhaps this is because they are traditionally not as tall as commercial high-rises. However, this is no longer the case; not only do many compare with other high-rise buildings when it comes to height, but a building designed for living is particularly interesting in that it conveys a sense of the purpose and function of the building.    Sky High Living   explores a selection of the most arresting residential tall buildings from around the world, predominantly from North America and Asia. The buildings featured include: Trump Tower, USA; Tung Wang Palace, Taiwan; The Indigo, Canada; Le Park Tower, Argentina; Three Salts Tower, United Arab Emirates; Republic Tower, Australia; Royal Pavilion, China; Two Towers, Holland; Elephant &Castle Eco-Towers, UK.   Features the work of architects such as: Dennis Lau &NG Chun Man; Skidmore, Owings &Merrill LLP; T.R.
