The Unique High-Rise Structure of the MNC Tower 2 Building in Jakarta

August 20, 2013

In this paper the structure of the 56-story MNC Tower 2 Building is described. To meet the architectural requirements, a quite unique structural system has resulted. It consists of two subsystems in the upper structure, a core wall subsystem with outriggers and a mega frame subsystem on top of it. It is believed that such a structural system has never been applied before elsewhere. Dynamic characteristics, dynamic response to seismic and wind actions, as well as structural performance are described. The substructure, consisting of the 5-level basement structure and the piled raft foundation are further discussed.
