Quotes from Mike Lin

Be a Versatile and Well Rounded Designer

Whatever in your field, you need to be versatile and well rounded so you have a better and solid foundation for your profession. Often an experienced designer has great training on many other fields to become a better designer.  So don't just know 10% of what you already know, study 15% of what you know what you don't know and go extra miles to learn 75% of what you don't know what you don't know.   - Mike

Tip of the Week: Exploded Axonometric Diagrams

When you have a project that has multiple layers and / or levels, an effective graphic tool is to utilize exploded axonometric views. Once drawn, these levels could be connected with lines and graphic texts to show flow, circulation, and programmatic data.

20 of the World's Tallest Buildings by 2020

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has released a study on the world’s 20 tallest buildings projected to be built by 2020. The Council introduced the term ‘megatall’ to describe buildings over 600 meters (1,968 feet) tall, which is twice the height of the previous superlative ’supertall’ buildings. Buildings that have been stalled and do not have a predictable completion date have been excluded from the study.

The 20 tallest megatall buildings, nicely lined by the CTBUH are:

  1. Kingdom Tower, Jeddah: 1,000+ meters (3,280+ feet)
  2. Burj Khalifa, Dubai: 828 meters (2,717 feet)
  3. Ping An Finance Center, Shenzen: 660 meters (2,165 feet)
  4. Seoul Light DMC Tower: 640 meters (2,101 feet)
  5. Signature Tower, Jakarta: 638 meters (2,093 feet)
  6. Shanghai Tower, Shanghai: 632 meters (2,073 feet)
  7. Wuhan Greenland Center, Wuhan: 606 meters (1,988 feet)
  8. Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel, Makkah: 601 meters (1,972 feet)
  9. Goldin Finance 117, Tian Jin: 597 meters (1,957 feet)
  10. Lotte World Tower, Seoul: 555 meters (1,819 feet)
  11. Doha Convention Center and Tower, Doha: 551 meters (1,808 feet)
  12. One World Trade Center, New York City: 541 meters (1,776 feet)
  13. Chow Tai Fook Guangzhou, Guangzhou: 530 meters (1,739 feet)
  14. Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Binhai Center, Tian Jin: 530 meters (1,739 feet)
  15. Dalian Greenland Center, Dalian: 518 meters (1,699 feet)
  16. Pentominium, Dubai: 516 meters (1,693 feet)
  17. Busan Lotte Town Tower, Busan: 510 meters (1,674 feet)
  18. Taipei 101, Taipei: 508 meters (1,667 feet)
  19. Kaisa Feng Long Centre, Kaisa: 500 meters (1,640 feet)
  20. Shanghai WFC, Shanghai: 492 meters (1,614 feet)

Interesting but not surprising to see that half of the projects are in China and that 70 percent of the buildings are in Asian countries that are low in available area and high in population density.

Even more interesting would be to see where the highest occupiable/usable floors land in the buildings.

As the study points out: "With every increase in height, there are energy implications in the construction, maintenance, and occupation of a building. Additionally, with added height comes less space efficiency, as structural members and service cores increase to service the increased height of the building. At what point are the significant benefits of increased density provided by building tall overtaken by the energy repercussions of height?"
