Summary/Abstract: Energy efficiency and the environmentally-friendly lifestyle are increasingly relevant topics in every industry. They are a particularly important part of the design, construction and operation of modern high-rise buildings. The façade of buildings is a basic passive structural component which regulates heating and cooling loads in tall buildings, as well as their aesthetic look. The goal of the survey’s author are the technical and economic aspects of innovative façade solutions for high-rise buildings construction. Examples of massive ventilating and photovoltaic façades, as well as high-tech solutions such as the “double skin” and the “smart façades” from the Middle East, have been explored. Examples of combining ecology, energy efficiency, and façade engineering in tall buildings are also presented. Energy efficiency and economic feasibility are not the only important factors in the realization of the envelope in each high-rise building.
