Visually, it’s the back-span that throws you off. The Clinton Library is, at least, consistent from a visual if not engineering perspective. Logic tells your eye that this building should just roll over. What must the OTM have been? I noticed the vignette posted didn’t address the back-spanned portion, which to me was the more interesting curiosity. We all knew the cantilever was likely going to be a truss or something. The curiosity is the back-spanned portion.
Doesn't seem that different from the
William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library in
Actually, I saw a work
up on this building and the engineering is pretty impressive. They
didn’t just cantilever beams out, each box is full story height trusses
in the side walls with an interesting anchorage geometry engaging a thorough “whole
building” structural system.
