High building Low building Typical effects of wind pressures around buildings Wind load is part of the consideration in the building construction where it will be more important for the higher building. Low and high buildings .

Their lines are merely indicated by the narrow fixing strips to the storey height façade glazing. . Tokyo The building consist of storey high glazing elements – transparent on the ground floor and translucent in the upper levels. The walls. the floors are not immediately visible from the street. The building has a steel structure. As a result of this. the floors of which are suspended from bracket fixed to the façade columns. columns and exposed ribbed metal soffits of the floor slab are painted white. with the dark parquet flooring striking a contrasting note.
