Designing the Ecocity-in-the-Sky is a comprehensive resource on vertical urbanism and how to plan and design a vertical ecocity of 100 stories. The book covers the main objectives: ecodesign, concepts, habitats, and designing for biodiversity. There are detailed drawings, diagrams, and photos that work through the technical, research, analytic, and engineering issues of ecotowers and eco-engineering designs. The book is also helpful for anyone looking to understand multi-elevatoring concepts for multiuse towers, floor-plate designs for various usages, the effects of wind on towers, and other sustainable eco-engineering concepts.
