The Role of Breaching Mechanisms in Controlling the Relationship between Supporter and Supported in High Rise
The process of constructing high buildings is a major challenge for architects and engineers as it represents a new direction for the development of architecture and construction technology in contemporary societies. It attracts the eye of the viewer and it’s considered as a landmark of the city. It forms an important part of the urban landscape of modern cities, as it is considered (Landmark). The construction and forms of high buildings has been influenced by the construction systems that are used to transform from their box shapes to new ones as a result of relying on the relationship between the structure (supporter) and the architectural form (supported) during the design process.
This paper tends to draw attention to the relationship between the supporting construction structure and the supporting architectural form in high buildings as a result of using several rule-breaching mechanisms. First, we address high buildings and classifying their shapes. Then, we identify the supporter structural system and the supported architectural form system and how they are linked together to determine the nature and the pattern of the relationship between them. Lately, breaching the rules in architecture and its mechanisms is identified.
