Passion Projects | SFO’s Traveler’s Torch

Join Walter P Moore and Director of Seismic Design, Rafael Sabelli on YouTube Live to learn about how passion and a collaboration of dedicated structural engineers provide a one-of-a-kind centerpiece for an airport in a severe seismic zone.

3pm Pacific | 4PM Mountain | 5PM Central / 6PM Eastern


The San Francisco International Airport features a 220-foot-tall air-traffic control tower with an iconic, torch-like design that has become the symbol of the airport. This majestic tower utilizes an innovative self-centering system that not only resists earthquake damage but corrects it by restoring the tower to vertical after a severe earthquake.
The project is the winner of multiple awards, including the 2016 ACEC Gran Conceptor Award and the 2016 NCSEA Excellence in Structural Engineering Outstanding Project Award.
