Publisher's description: As population growth and urbanization pick up speed worldwide, the need for high-rise, high-density residential architecture is becoming ever more acute. As Residential Towers shows, this branch of architecture is ready for that demand, with creative approaches to meeting the social and architectural challenges inherent in housing a large number of people in a small amount of ground space. Taking readers to cities on five continents, the book presents analyses of eighty architecturally significant tower blocks in a way that makes it possible to compare approaches and see the effects of innovations.
