Investigation and Prevention of Failures

  • Lev Zetlin


Exactly 20 years ago Progressive Architecture magazine devoted a special issue to the future of architecture, to which this author contributed an article on the Engineer’s Third Millenium. Tall buildings of the future were featured prominently then. Even though some of the concepts for future tall buildings in that article appeared far fetched in 1966, it is encouraging to see that many of the creative far-fetched ideas have been realized in 1986. Prefabrication, modular construction, tube envelope, and dynamic stabilization of tall buildings are realities today.
