Abstract

This project is based on the 2016 Architectural Engineering Institute Student Design Competition. The proposal is a new structural design for the building that is being constructed on 888 Boylston Street, Boston. With the help of software tools and various design methods, the team worked on designing the architectural, structural, and integrated systems of a LEED certified building with a near net zero output of energy, emission, water, and waste. The project addresses the engineering challenges involved in high-rise building design, specifically through the use of a concrete slab structure called Bubbledeck, as well as construction planning, energy efficiency, adaptability, and resiliency.
