Knowledge-Based Systems for Tall Buildings
The life span of a tall building is made up of five stages: planning, design, construction, operation and finally demolition. The nature and magnitude of the entire project is such that it requires the involvement of many different professionals such as developers, economists, town planners, architects, interior designers, engineers, landscape architects and so on. The height, size, density, and the various impacts of the tall building within the urban context increase each day. The technical advances in many disciplines provide new tools for handling problems in the tall building process.
