    Experiments with “Air Castles”

    An article based on an interview with Aleksander Borisovich Ayrapetov, certified expert in aerodynamics of buildings, architectural and building structures

    Just imagine: upon completion of construction, the height of the East tower of the multi-functional complex “Federation Tower” located in Moscow City, the modern business center of the city, will be 373.7 m (according to citynext.ru). Todays architects and builders create real “air castles” — bizarre structures of very sophisticated shapes, dominating over the cityscape. But with the growth of height of those facilities, a question is becoming increasingly important: How to make them more stable in air flow and safe for the human environment?
