Not sure what you're talking about. What elevator shaft?

Sumpin' like this...



The main thing I did was edit the last column of cladding to follow the reflection pattern the other ones follow. I also changed the levels and color corrected.

By the way, my bad, it wasn't an elevator shaft. It was just the building (reflecting in the windows).

Please don't repost photos like that. Just repost the text at the top, and whoever you're replying to will see it.

Thanks.

Just different ways of putting the date.
Fury did it year/month/day
some do it month/day/year
In UK we do it day/month/year

I don't like it. It is very confusing, seriously.

In America we do it M/D/Y.

And I'm pretty sure that's the only right way to do it.

Yeah its easy to recognise the americans by the M/D/Y

Anyone have any idea what sort of progress we can expect for the cladding?

Hello everybody I'm a newbie here

It might be important to remind that the belief that towers are an efficient solution to high density housing is simply : a MYTH

Indeed if you consider an "infinite" built surface, with the same constraints on natural light for the buildings, slabs for instance are much more efficient than towers in terms of density of surface built per available surface.

This belief that towers are a solution comes probably from a false intuition : that light is "in the volume" or something, and that by reaching high you just gain more light "for free", or more built surface naturally lighted, on the same available land surface.

But this is simply false : the sunlight available on a given surface (of course if you consider a unitary surface amongst a similarly built environment) simply depends on this surface, the two dimensional plan crossing the sunlight, and not on the built volume !

So towers is just a way amongst others to "share" this constant available sunlight.

Will post some computations on this I'm playing with right now. Quite surprised that this is not more publicized by the way. Difficult to find clear text around this, probably :

"Leslie Martin and Lionel March, Land Use and Built Form, Cambridge Research, Cambridge University, April 1966"

Cannot find an online copy of it free or not, would anybody knows where I can find it ?

So simply put : a tower like Burj Dubai for housing "makes sense" (not really in fact more for the icon), but in any case it is "livable" only as an isolated building.

If you were to base your urbanism with a series of Burj Dubai compared to some 6 or ten storeys slabs with the same natural light constraints : THE SLABS ARE MUCH MORE EFFICIENT IN TERMS OF BUILT SURFACE PER AVAILABLE SQUARE KILOMETER THAN THE TOWERS

In fact the built density of the towers urbanism, always with the same natural light constraints, tends towards zero as the number of storeys tends to infinity!!

Whereas the density of the slabs urbanism tends to a constant as the number of storeys tends to infinity.

In other words, high rise buildings can liberate some very local land surface, in between the city buildings, but it is NOT a solution for increasing the overall density of the city (always with this natural light constraint), and with respect to this overall city density, the tower urbanism is counter productive compared to the slabs one, and in fact even more so compared to a court yards buildings based one.
