A Tall Building Core-Hanger Interaction System
A common feature of most European towns is that they were developed with respect paid to the existing buildings, which are generally low-rise and frequently of historical and architectural value. The nuclei of such towns had usually been castles enclosed by city walls around which some burghers’ dwellings were gradually grouped. The castle towers and the church spires were usually two to four times as tall as the surrounding buildings, thus having been the skyscrapers of the past. This situation, together with the willingness to preserve a human scale of the towns’ living tissue, has resulted in a tendency to keep tall buildings within a reasonable height.
