Whilst there have been numerous categorisations of high-rise buildings according to their function, architectural style, height or structural strategy, historically little work has been undertaken to classify them based on factors affecting their façade, attitude to natural lighting, ventilation strategies, etc. This paper aims to rectify this by examining the history of energy use in tall buildings, from their origins in North America in the late 19th on their energy consumption characteristics.

Abstract

Whilst there have been numerous categorisations of high-rise buildings according to their function, architectural style, height or structural strategy, historically little work has been undertaken to classify them based on factors affecting their façade, attitude to natural lighting, ventilation strategies, etc. This paper aims to rectify this by examining the history of energy use in tall buildings, from their origins in North America in the late 19th on their energy consumption characteristics.
