Later chapters allow you to explore more complex applications, such as biomimicry. Projects drawn from Skidmore, Owings and Merrill's vast catalog of built high-rises, many of which Sarkisian designed, demonstrate these concepts.

Using this contextual knowledge and analysis, you can determine what types of structural solutions are best suited for a tower on that site.
