Torre Reforma - an innovative tower design in Mexico City.
: Guimar aes, Portugal.
The 244 m tall Torre Reforma is being designed to the highest standards for seis-mic performance and sustainability, and will be the tallest building in Central and South Ameri-ca. The building has a unique structural configuration due to its triangular shape in plan, cluster floor arrangement and exposed perimeter coupled shear walls and façade structural steel brac-ing, eliminating all vertical columns. In addition, the building is located eccentrically on its site, and includes a 10-story basement to accommodate car parking requirements. To respond to these design challenges, the project team developed an efficient and economical structural sys-tem, and carried out a performance-based seismic design of the tower including nonlinear re-sponse history analysis.
