Structural examination of high rise buildings in Japan
In January 1964, the building height limitation which had been stipulated in the Japanese Building Code since 1921 was repealed. The revisions permit the construction of buildings exceeding 31 meters (100 ft) in height, provided that the buildings are constructed in accordance with the provisions of volume control as well as sky exposure restrictions.
