It was in 1968 that the Kasumigaseki Building, 36 stories and 150m above ground, made its debut in Japan. Prior to that all buildings had been limited to 9 stories and 30m in height. It was built by Kajima Corporation, who has participated in the construction of app. 30% of the current high-rise buildings of over 100m in height in Japan.
The 21st century is immediately ahead. What is the ideal building of the future? What changes will evolve in large cities? As a solution, Kajima proposes the DIB-200 (Dynamic Intelligent Building), a 200-story super-high-rise building. In 1979, Kajima announced the possibility of realizing a 100-story 400m-high-rise building, even in an earthquake-prone country like Japan. In the subsequent 12 years, the requirements for high-rise buildings have expanded to include many advanced functions.
With the concentration of people, facilities and information in Tokyo, factors that must be considered are the need to use land effectively, the demand of protection of valuable information and maintenance of information processing functions in the event of natural disturbances, the desire for artificial intelligence and the demand for more comfortable and spacious amenity. The DIB-200 is a super-high-rise building of a futuristic type that satisfies all of these demands. This is not just a wild fantasy, but a sound concept based on the high-rise building technology and earthquake resistant systems developed.
