Christoph Ingenhoven Explains the Necessity for High-Rises

12 June 2013

Christoph Ingenhoven presents his point of view regarding the necessity of high-rises in cities. He discusses a wide range of built projects, including one of the first ecological high-rises, the RWE Tower in the center of Essen as well as 1 Bligh, situated in the historical part of the financial district in Sydney, an award-winning project which set new standards regarding social, cultural, urban-planning, and sustainability. The future for most human beings will take place in cities. The reasons for this are multifaceted: geographical, ecological, and economical. The densification of cities is one of the architect’s major tasks and challenges.
