Tall building developments have been rapidly increasing worldwide. While the early design of tall buildings culminated with the dominance of the International Style, today’s pluralism in architectural design has produced tall buildings of many different forms, including more complex forms, such as twisted, tilted, tapered and free forms. This paper reviews the evolution of tall building’s structural systems. The use of “ductile seismic frames,” whose proper seismic behavior largely depends upon construction details and specific design rules. . The superior structural properties of box-type wall structures with respect to conventional frame structures envisage a change of paradigm from actual “ductility-based” Earthquake Engineering (centered on frame structures) toward 100% safe buildings through a “strength-based” design exploiting the use of box-type wall-based structures. Finally, the future of structural developments in tall buildings is envisioned briefly.
