Our melting pot of thought in the 2011 Alvar Aalto Meeting in Finland will concentrate on design methodologies and concepts, especially related to high-rise building. A tower is an architectural object of design and organisation, but also a device for the optimisation of growth. Despite the negative associations often linked with tall buildings, there is a sustainable justification for high-rises in infill construction: this saves land, optimises large technical infrastructures, and reduces traffic.
