We consider the overall buckling under own weight of a thin-walled column of circular crosssection and a radius that is a hyperbolic sine function of distance from the top of the column. The maximum stress is limited to a given value, but there is no limit to the height of the column. The wall thickness is determined by consideration of local buckling. It can be made to represent a building by adjusting the own weight of the column to include the weight of the floors, finishes, cladding and imposed load.
