14 May : Dario Trabucco, a Tall Buildings expert resident in Venice, is visiting Nottingham for a couple of days. He took part in the latter part of our crit on 13 May, and today delivered a lecture on the History of Tall Building Cores. Dario will be publishing this as a CTBUH paper soon.
Although only a small number of students turned up, it was very good lecture with room for discussion. It ended with a discussion of embodied energy of tall buildings, compared with their running costs.
Dario is hosting a mini-conference in Venice in late June to discuss further research directions in the world of Tall Buildings.
