Transcript of "Construction turningtorso2"

  1. 1. TheConstruction of the<br />TURNING TORSO<br />Adaptedfrom:<br />arch 631 case study<br />
  2. 2. Santiago Calatrava<br />Artist<br />Structuralengineer<br />Architect<br />Facts<br />Building: mixed use.<br />1st and 2nd cubes: commercialspace.<br />3rd to 9th cubes: residentialspace.<br />Cost: 235 million US $<br />
  3. 3. Structure<br />9 cubes of 5 floorseach.<br />Total number of floors: 57<br />Basement: 2<br />Height: 190.4 m<br />Twist angle:<br /><ul><li>Each cube: 10 degrees.
  4. 4. Eachfloor: 1.6 degrees.</li></ul>Materials<br />Concrete core-shearwalls.<br />Concrete slabs.<br />Steelspine.<br />
  5. 5. ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPT<br />● Designedto look like a turninghumanbody.<br />● Nineverticallystacked cubes twisted 90 degreesfrombottomto top.<br />● Thesteelspine twists alongwiththestructuresimmilartospine and ribs of thehumanbody.<br />
  6. 6. STRUCTURAL CONCEPT<br />1: Concrete floorslab. Onefootthick. <br />Cantileveredfromthecore.<br />2: Concrete tubecore. Radium: 10.6 m.<br />3: Concrete perimetercolumn.<br />4: Steelspine pin connected.<br />2<br />3<br />1<br />4<br />
  7. 7. STEEL SPINE<br />▪ Acts as anexoeskeletonforthestructure.<br />▪ Reduces winddisplacement.<br />▪ Acts as a reinforcingtruss.<br />▪ Consists of 20 horizontal and 18 diagonal membersknown as cigars.<br />LATERAL LOAD TRANSFER<br />Steelspine<br />Perimeterwalls<br />Cantileverfloorslabs<br />Central core<br />Foundation<br />
