The challenges and opportunities of skyscraper cities

We welcomed clients, colleagues and CTBUH 2015 conference participants for insightful presentations on Monday October 26, 2015 in parallel to the main CTBUH annual conference in New York City.

The premiere of our video entitled “Engineering an Icon: How One World Trade Center Redefined Structural Engineering and Recreated an Icon for New York” was one of today’s program highlights.

Ahmad Rahimian, Director of Building Structures, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, USA, and  Yoram Eilon, Senior Vice President of Building Structures, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, USA, along with Judith Dupré, Architectural Historian and Author, Mike Mennella (Tishman Construction), Steve Plate (Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) and T.J. Gottesdiener (SOM) discuss the challenges of re-creating an icon in a very unique context.
