Session 7C: Advancing the Skybridge: What's Next?

Panel Discussion

22 October 2018
1:45 PM – 2:45 PM

With rapid changes advancing in the transportation and tall building industries, now is the time to ask: how will skybridges evolve in the future? Will they provide travel paths for horizontal elevators or autonomous vehicles high above the ground? Support greenhouses for growing food? Take on the mechanical and services burdens for the attached skyscrapers so they can go higher and expand leasable space? Everything is on the table.
