Sustainable Design Innovations in Vertical Architecture 

10:10 - 10:30

Promoting Sustainable Architecture through Innovative Façade Designs - Case Study on BioSkin Building Façade
Inspired by the traditional practice of Uchimizu, the sprinkling of water in Japanese temples and garden to lower ambient temperatures and keep dust at bay, the BioSkin is a system of ceramic pipes that absorbs and evaporates heat. This technology is implemented on the NBF Osaki Building in Tokyo.

10:30 - 10:50

Project Kingdom Tower - Constructing the World’s Tallest Building
Kingdom Tower in Jeddah will be the world’s tallest skyscraper with a height of 1,007 meter (3 303.8 feet). It will be the first building to reach the height of 1 kilometre and will be 173 meters higher than Burj Khalifa. This presentation will focus on the significant technical engineering challenges.

10:50 - 11:20

Plyscrapers –  Investigating  a Future of Wooden Skyscrapers
The development of engineered timber could pave the way for the evolution of eco-friendly ‘plyscrapers’. Christchurch welcomed its first multistorey timber structure this year, there are plans for Vancouver, and the talk is China could follow

Networking Coffee Break & Visit to Exhibitor Lounge

11:50 - 12:10

Smart Vertical Transportation for Skyscrapers – Designing Elevators for High Rises
This presentation will focus on the technologies for sustainable mobility in tall buildings.

12:10 - 12:30

Cloud based Building Automation for Tall Buildings
This presentation will provide an overview of the benefits, risks and constraints of using cloud technology for constructing skyscrapers.

12:30 - 12:50

Fire Safety Design in Skyscrapers

Panel Discussion
Building the Next Generation of Skyscrapers – Challenges and Opportunities

13:35 - 13:55

Energy Efficient Skyscrapers
With an increasing population growth comes the challenge of higher energy consumption which has led to the innovation of energy efficient designs for skyscrapers to help reduce consumption. This presentation will cover a case study on a Skyscraper Project outlining the implementation of these energy efficient designs and the impact it has had in the reduction of its carbon foot print and air pollution.

13:55 - 14:55


14:55 - 15:15

Exploring Intelligent Façade Technologies in Skyrise Architecture
This presentation will explore the latest technologies in façade design for tall buildings.
