Sustainable design of tall buildings

Seda Yavaşbatmaz, Arzuhan Burcu Gültekin

Abstract

Tall buildings cause more environmental difficulties in their life cycles than low-rise buildings. In order to decrease these difficulties, the carrier system design and sustainable design should be considered together in the design of tall buildings. The application of sustainable design criteria on 13 buildings certificated according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is considered in the paper. The application of these criteria on the studied tall buildings is evaluated in the context of the evaluation method proposed in the paper.
