"PERFORMATIVE SKYSCRAPER: TALL BUILDING DESIGN NOW examines current trends in high-rise design and the technologies
that are shaping the new forms. Scott Johnson, a well-known architect of tall buildings, describes how the combination of highly sophisticated
modeling software and demands for ever increasing environmental sustainability have led to an overwhelming emphasis on high-performance.
Johnson takes the reader through examples of high-performance window-walls, state-of-the-art parametric modeling for super-tall structures,
and the current state of vertical mixed-use towers."
