October 23 -
  The newly formed IABSE UAE NG supported an event organised by the IStructE UAE RG on 23 October 2018 at the American University in Dubai. It was entitled “Integration of Architecture and Structure in the Design of Jeddah Tower – The Next World’s Tallest Building”. This was a well-attended event with over 90 participants in the audience. The speakers, Peter Weismantle of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture & John Peronto of Thornton Tomasetti, gave a compelling insight into the architectural concept & design along with how this integrated seamlessly with the structural design to give the Tower its’ form. They discussed the challenges involved in delivering such an iconic building in a demanding environment. A lively and technically provoking Q&A session followed.
