Construction continues on the undulating, futuristic 365 meter-tall Küçük Çaml?ca TV (KCTV) Tower in Istanbul, Turkey. The new telecommunications tower will replace several drab structures currently in use and support an estimated 125 broadcasting transmitters?becoming the tallest edifice in the city.Featuring restaurants, exhibition spaces, meeting areas, a panoramic elevator, and a two-story observation deck looking out over the Bosphorus Strait, the new landmark structure is expected to draw an estimated 4.5 million visitors annually. The £36 million tower will be topped with 145-meter steel mast supported by a 220-meter concrete core which, as of early February, has reached 153 meters of construction.While wind testing was employed to confirm the monumental structure?s overall stability, it was also used by London-based engineering and facade consultants Newtecnic. This testing allowed the firm, whose previous projects include the cladding of Zaha Hadid Architect?s Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre, to develop the unique facade and optimize how the load of the building envelope would act on the concrete core.
