• Taipei 101 features a 508-meter,• 101-story tower• a five-story deep basement• six-story retail structure• most floor plan areas vary between 2000 and 2500 square meters (21,500 to 27,000 square feet),• though they are as small as 47 square meters above the main roof. Building aspect ratio (height/width) to the main roof is about 9 based on its ‘waist’ (and 6.8 counting the wider base).
•The Taipei 101 is built in theHsinyi District of the city, therapid-growing “Manhattan”of Taipei.•The 508 m (1667’) Taipei101 with a 101 story super-structure, a 5 storybasement is a structural steelbuilding.• The total floor area,including a 6 story retailpodium, adds up 370,000 m
The challenges to designand build a super-tallbuilding in Taipei:•height•natural constraints suchas typhoon•Winds• frequent strongearthquakes•weak clayey soils
The world’s largest passive tuned mass wind damper, 36 columns provide vertical support, including eight megasuspended from level 92 down to level 88, helps to columns around the perimeter.ensure stability and comfort.The structure is reinforced by a Moment Frame System The Tower is built on 380 concrete piles, sunk 80 meters intolinking the columns on all floors the ground
A damping systemwas implementedto reduce theexcessive lateralaccelerationsfrom wind
Tuned mass damper of stacked field-weldedsteel plates will swing as a pendulum on steelcables.
Outrigger columns arevisible below the tower’waist’ and perimetermoment frame columns arevisible above.
Mall atrium roof is spanned by twin three- chord Vierendeel trusses.
Note a setback above each 8-story module, the tower ’waist’ and double-notched corners for wind load reduction.Detail of atrium roof truss incorporatesChinese symbology.
