Designing the World’s Tallest Buildings
RONALD CHEONG

Studying physics, maths and art for A-levels made me turn to architecture for my science project. Whilst researching for my project, I found a report that talked about “confusing the wind".

It gave me a vague idea of what I wanted it to progress to. One of the problems that I met was deciding what my project should head towards - since I was doing this project by myself, I recognised that I needed to limit my ambition. This in turn brought me to the theme of “limitations for building a taller skyscraper".

In my project, I made a paper model of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. I enjoyed this the most, particularly when I found out that the base of the skyscraper is similar to a “fidget spinner". The architects took the inspiration from a plant, which also made me consider how nature is related to everything.
