Transportation Alternatives for Sustainable Cities

Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science

Elevators are a critical part of urban density. However, as buildings increase in height, the elevator core grows to accommodate the number of elevators required, reducing floor area ratio in a building. Recent innovations in vertical transportation revolve around how many elevators can be in a shaft and how we can dispatch those elevators intelligently. Dual-car systems optimize the elevator core area, while offering the flexibility of independently moving cars. Multidirectional elevators take this paradigm even further, as multiple carriages can be consolidated into fewer shafts, reducing the elevator’s footprint by up to 50%.
