Vertical vs. Horizontal: A Consideration of Appropriate Form
Join hosts Saxon Sigerson, AIA, Kris Barkley, AIA and Arturo Levenfeld, AIA for a casual evening of discussion centered around the topic of Vertical vs. Horizontal architecture.
The past decade has produced numerous buildings that truly fit the characterization of the term "skyscraper" and despite the weakened global economy it seems that this trend is far from being over. Counter to this, a few architects have responded with horizontal buildings that forego the iconic approach and seek to connect more directly to their environment.
What is the most appropriate design response for a mega-structure? Are tall buildings inherently more sustainable in the way that they contribute towards density? Our open forum discussion is intended to explore these questions and others in our continuing Architecture Matters series.
