The Great Fire of Chicago in 1871 destroyed almost the entire city. As a result, the Chicago School of Architecture emerged, which is characterised by high-rise buildings with steel skeleton frames. This architectural movement spread beyond America and influenced cities worldwide. This thesis analyses the impact of the American high-rise...

The construction industry is responsible for the emitting carbon, nitrogen, and particulate matter, which is harmful to the environment and contributes to global warming. Municipalities in the Netherlands plan to reduce emissions in inner-city developments to zero before 2030, for which a transformation of the already...

This thesis examines the load distribution on 60 m long piles under gradual static loading, considering the POST Rotterdam high-rise building as the study project. The research employs fibre optic (FO) instrumentation on site to monitor strain changes in the piles over time and assess load transfer mechanisms. This data is integrated into a...

Al decennia staren beleidsmakers en stedebouwkundigen zich blind op hoogbouwbeleid door middel van hoogteregulering. Ook al blijft dit vanuit gezondheid en welstand verstandig, dit is een eenzijdige benadering. Zeker nu er steeds meer openbare ruimtes binnen de hoogbouwprojecten ontworpen en gerealiseerd worden, rijst de vraag hoe we voorbij de...

The sustainability of the building industry and the increasing demand for new buildings creates an opportunity where materiality and adaptability of the build environment needs to be reassessed in order to answer to the following issues. The research paper delves into the subject of adaptability in the built environment and checks the influence...

Unappreciated by the public, and ambiguous with its history, Brutalism has its followers, among designers and architects yet it is still a stylistic outcast. La tour de Droixhe, the high-rise at hand, thus, is seen not only as heritage but also as a lonely giant towering over the city of Liège, Belgium. This brutalist social housing development...

This thesis comprises of vertical deformation differences in high-rise structures where a concrete stability core is combined with a timber frame. The timber frame consists out of prefab timber modules which derive all lateral stability from the concrete core. Due to contrasting elastic, hygroexpansion and viscoelastic properties there is a...

Timber high-rise buildings have been gaining in popularity. However, due to the low material stiffness of timber the stability systems of these buildings are often made with steel or concrete. To avoid this the material efficiency of the timber stability systems must be improved. The most material efficient stability systems for timber high-rise...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

In the Netherlands, there is an increasing need to create residential spaces in its already crowded cities to accommodate the growing population. Constructing high-rise buildings is one way to try to solve the issue. However, high-rise buildings are sensitive to wind-induced vibrations. The accurate prediction of the dynamic response is...

Population growth and urbanisation trends bring many consequences related to the increase in global energy consumption, CO2 emissions and a decrease in arable land per person. High‑rises have been one of the inevitable buildings of metropoles to provide extra floor space since the early examples in the 19th century. Therefore, optimisation of...

Ebels, Mirthe (author)
More and more people in the Netherlands want to live in the so-called Randstad. This results in a need for densification in Dutch cities. One of the solutions for this is building more high-rise residential buildings. High-rise buildings provide amazing views and house many people on a small plot of land. They do however, have some downsides....

The present research investigates the potential of timber-glass composites in unitized curtain wall façade applications. Hybrid aluminum-timber curtain walls and timber-glass composites are explored, while specific design criteria, timber and adhesive limitations and unique material properties are defined. A geometry study is conducted though...

A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

With the exponential growth of high-rise buildings in Rotterdam over the past decades the city is now the 10th highest city in Europe. The role that high-rise plays in the city of Rotterdam has been developing throughout the years and started becoming more important. Through literature and municipal archival research, the significance of high...

Due to global warming and the subsequent rise of the sea level, scarcity of land to build on, the continues increase of the world’s population and a shift in population from rural areas to the city, there is a need for innovative projects to tackle or deal with the increase of needed liveable area. One of the solutions is floating cities. A...

As the world's population keeps increasing and the rate of urbanizations increases, The rate at which high-rise structures are being built is skyrocketing. In the Netherlands, this is no different. It is expected that the amount of high-rise structures taller than 70 meters will more than double in the coming 20 years. As these structures become...

Currently, the waste processing is always far from residents’ sight because most waste is transported to the centralised factories isolated from the urban context. As a result, Many residents are not aware of the importance of separating and recycling organic waste at the source. This is also same for many high-rise green façade projects, a new...

The starting point of the thesis relates to the “Rotterdam Mountain” Project, envisioned by the Rotterdam Dreamers, which proposes an artificial mountain in the otherwise flat landscape of the Netherlands, supported by a cable network that is spanning between multiple high-rise towers. This network has the double function of supporting the...
