Computer modeling has helped revolutionize architectural design, enabling sophisticated and sculptural shapes rich with three-dimensional complexity. But while many such designs are driven by aesthetics, new modeling tools and algorithms can also be applied toward functional ends. The No Shadow Tower is one such structure, designed to reflect light and illuminate a space otherwise in shadow.NBBJ, a global architecture firm, developed this project in response to issues of light access is growing cities around the world. Generally, more towers means less sunlight on the streets below.
