The proceedings of a session on the Aesthetics and Design of High-Rise Buildings at the ASCE Convention in Denver is included in its entirety. The session was chaired by Lynn Beedle and papers presented on this subject by Joseph Colaco; Myron Goldsmith; Jeppe Larsen and T. Y. Lin; and Charles Thornton. The engineering aesthetics of tall buildings is discussed in relation to various building materials, building form, individual members, joints and connections. The effects of scale were also discussed with respect to the appropriateness and efficiency of various structural systems. High rise buildings' social context is explored, as well as its function in the urban environment. The importance of collaboration between architects and engineers is shown to be an important requirement in the creation of buildings with a strong engineering aesthetic; examples are given of such buildings. The purpose of this session and these proceedings is to encourage the active participation of engineers in the design of large scale buildings, to include the search for new building systems and their appropriate aesthetic expression.
