The paper presents a brief understanding of the concept of Outrigger system and explains its structural composition and advantages. The paper explains the different types of outrigger – conventional, offset and virtual. It tries to establish advantages of virtual system over others. Although theoretically conceptualized, the structural system has potential to suit the requirements and demands of a structurally and economically viable tall building. The paper presents an elaborate comparison of the lateral load resisting systems and also compares the virtual system with the conventional outrigger system.
