Alessandro Cariani, Massimo Stefano Venco, Arcangelo Tarantino

A tall building is not only a concrete structure but even an engineering mix of specialities: in the last ten years many different aproaches has benn tested in projecting skyscrapers. Computational fluid dynamics has been used to engineering the Palais Lumiere, the iconic skyscraper thought by Pierre Cardin and due to be constructed in Venice.
