Looking back 20 and Looking forward 20

January 11, 2020

The last 20 years were foundation time to build my professional career as a professional engineer in the building industry. The next 20 years will be the time to build something on the foundation. I love those words about the future, It is not coming to us rather future is about how we will build it in the right direction. The future does not belong to the current generation but the future generation.

Chap 13. Seoul International Financial Center

January 01, 2020

The project is located in the Yeouido Island district of Seoul, Korea. The project program includes seven levels below grade for both car parking and retail for an area of approximately 193,625 square meters (2,083,405 sq. ft.). Above grade will have a FAR (floor area ratio) of 9 which translates into approximately 330,120 square meters (3,552,090 sq. ft.) divided between three office buildings and a hotel. The hotel program assumes an 800 room five-star hotel including meeting rooms, ballroom and conference rooms whose functions are assumed to be below grade.

Chap 12-1. Why do we build?

January 01, 2020

What are you building? Life is about building something. Career is also what we want to build. After 16 to 18 school years, we step out to build own career in each different field. Yes, it is right. We were born to build. Now look around your friends and colleagues in school and work place. Are they building something?  Sometimes building something new takes a long lead if you are building alone.  That is why we need partners for a long journey. The partners can share story, passion and vision so they can pull each other with trust.

If you want to succeed in your field, please help others to succeed as much as you want to succeed. When you receive helps please give it back to him and others.

But if you want to go faster please carry only yourself. But if you want to go farther, please take your partners.   When you built something, please share it with the young. They need your presence and successful story for them. We sometimes are too humble.

Chap 12. Exoskeleton Structure in Miami, FL

January 01, 2020

1000 Museum located in downtown Miami is an artistic sublimation of high-rise engineer. A 702-meter high 62 story residential building, it is the work of Zaha Hadid, an architect famous for Seoul's DDP. Construction began in 2015, and now all the frame has been climbed and the interior is on full speed. Zaha Hadid, a female architect, has been awarded the Prizker Prize, and unfortunately, when the building was in full swing in 2016, she was doomed to leave her co-workers and the likes of the world's architects with disappointment. The building is transforming the Skyline of Miami, Florida. The Author was a structural peer reviewed.

Chap 11. Engineer's role and Way

January 01, 2020

Structural engineers design the human living space to stand safely. Understanding the force of nature is essential so that architectural structures can stand safely against gravity and wind and earthquakes.
Structural engineering is an application engineering based on an understanding of basic physics. There are many problems to solve when designing a structure. Sometimes engineers recognize and name problems themselves, and they lead answers based on engineering principles based on assumptions.  However, there is not always a simple clear answer, nor does it have a single answer. In traditional education, we deal only with problems that have obvious answers, but when we encounter uncertain and unclear problems, we are sometimes embarrassed and unable to touch them. That's why engineers need creative judgement based on basic physics and engineering. Over the past century, architectural engineering and construction technologies have evolved. 

Chap 10. Sky is touchable?

January 01, 2020

The sky looks high but closer to the people who are waiting for the completion of the three residential towers. The Zenith Tower creates a luxurious and modern art residential life environment in a Suyoung bay area, Busan, Korea

 

The Zenith towers are comprised of three residential towers (total 1,788 units in 70, 75 and 80 story) and a 9 story retail building and five story basement levels, situated on the 42,478 m2 (210m x 200m) reclaimed site in the heart of Suyoung bay area. The total gross area is 572,535m2 (389,200 m2 above grade and 183,335m2 below grade).
