Abstract: The modern skyscraper has and will continue to feature prominently in the landscape of urban cities. This paper reviews the evolution of tall building’s structural systems and the technological driving force behind tall building developments. An investigation was carried out to understand the behaviour of the different lateral systems employed in today’s skyscrapers. The advantages and disadvantages of all schemes were explored from both an architectural and structural efficiency standpoint. Finally, the future of structural developments in tall buildings is envisioned briefly. In that future, tall buildings will present some of the best opportunities for implementing sustainable construction practices.
