CTBUH: A Study on the Design Possibilities Enabled by Rope-Less, Non-Vertical Elevators Project

As Supporting Contributors of CTBUH, D2E are always interested to read about their latest research. More excitingly, we are sometimes able to contribute or asked to take part in their research. Recently, Robin Cheeseright, Director at D2E, took part on an international steering committee looking at the design possibilities enabled by the recently developed technology of rope-less, non-vertical elevators. The first meeting of the comittee, held in Chicago, began the start of a 24 month long study into how technological innovation in elevators, specifically rope-less non-vertical cabins, could impact the design outcomes of tall buildings and cities.
