  24. 24. © 2013 Autodesk  70,000 tons of steel used so far in construction, only 2 tons = waste.  1000x reduction in planned wastage  Curved curtain wall has over 19,000 glass panels - no two alike.  Of 20,000 square meters of panels installed to date, not one has been sent back because it was the wrong size or shape or assigned to the wrong location. Shanghai Tower, China
  25. 25. © 2013 Autodesk By modeling various options and conducting wind-tunnel tests, the design team discovered that a 120-degree twist and 55% Taper combination reduced wind loads by 24% and material cost by $58 million. Shanghai Tower, China
