The legendary was born on 3rd April 1929 in Bangladesh (Dhaka). His father was a mathematics teacher.
Being a Bangladeshi native who then worked for architectural firms of many and the greatest one in high rise building, one of them includes Skidmore, Owings and of Merrill, which began in 1960. He completed his study from the University of Calcutta and Dhaka. After getting his graduation degree from Dhaka he won the Fulbright Prize for talent students from inside his colony that’s motivates and let him followed his further education from the United States in the university of Illinois.
Chicago is a very nice place and in today’s world, it’s known for its two most amazing buildings of the khan.
This was amongst his projects of skyscraper namely John Hancock Centre and Sears Tower, being among the tallest in the world. The Sears Tower was the first as its structure system employs the Bundled tube, which consists of a bunch of narrow steel cylinders that were collaborated together to form a thick column.
Gradually, his latter projects include strikingly original Hajj Terminal of the King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Fazlur Khan has won a legacy of excellence in different platforms as structural engineering and in architecture.

He was born in a country of old fashion and heritage with no high-rise construction zone but as said, goals must be high and so he had worked his way to a position where he could easily rebuild and build the field of engineering and he built America’s proudest and glamorous landmarks.
The sears tower acquires 2 million square feet of office space for its own headquarter and its own other workplaces. Inspire of knowing the limited efficiency in the sub place, Rahman believed that he can add more by adding secondary stiffeners along each face of the building. He to explain also had given the example by holding a bunch of straw in his fist tightly showing each straw was flimsy but when he club altogether they became strong.
This break thought consisted, to make the building not with steel but with the external frame of the building . to do it with the help of a group of vertical pipes for the frame that gives vivid stability for it and also it saves the building from high winds and earthquake shocks.
