Functional, esthetic, or planning needs predicate changes in column or wall layouts. In tall buildings these often create special and interesting engineering problems solved with some form of transfer structure. This paper considers transfer structures in multifunctional tall buildings and proposes some generic solutions, which are illustrated with examples. Possible future trends are briefly examined.
