The Marvels—And Mistakes—Of Supertall Skyscrapers – The Atlantic

January 1, 2023

Great article. Thought the very intentional “wind shaping” was fascinating (e.g. the “blow through” floors at 432 Park). Maybe we’ll see fins next.

This didn’t seem unrelated to a lawsuit that 432 Park’s condo board has filed against the building’s developer. The plaintiffs claim that the building is riddled with more than 1,500 defects that have led to leaks, cracks, electrical explosions, and elevator shutdowns that trapped people for hours—as well as “horrible and obtrusive noise and vibrations,” including clicks, creaks, and a trash chute that thunders “like a bomb.”
diffusing the suction-filled whirlpools that sway a building as wind whips around its sides. You could notch the corners, like on Taipei 101, which resembles a towering stack of gifts. You could twist the building, like the Twizzler-esque Shanghai Tower. You could taper it to look like the tip of a paintbrush, like the Lakhta Center, or cut out sections to let wind blow through it, like the Shanghai World Financial Center, which is nicknamed “The Bottle Opener.” 432 Park’s designers decided to make it more porous: Every 12 stories, there are two “blow through” floors with cutouts for windows, but no glass. “}}

ddd / (d + d + d)
= (d*100 + d*10 + d*1) / (d*1 + d*1 + d*1)
= (d * (100 + 10 + 1)) / (d * (1 + 1 + 1)
= (d / d) * ((100 + 10 + 1) / (1 + 1 + 1))
= 1 * (111 / (1 + 1 + 1))
= 37
