Doubravka Lookout Tower in Prague - Kyje, Czech Republic

In June 2018, a new and unique lookout tower by world-famous architect Martin Rajniš opened in the Prague municipal district of Kyje. When designing the tower, maximum emphasis was placed on the use of natural and renewable material.

Structural Analysis

The RFEM model was initially created by importing the architectural model from AutoCAD. End releases were conservatively applied to all members even though many members overlap.

The RFEM calculation included a second-order analysis with the Picard method. For the design, a possible progressive collapse of the structure was taken into consideration where one of the highly loaded elements may fail (break). The model was also used to verify the various construction stages when installing the structure with cranes.
