Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Frazier Baker, also known as Bill Baker, (born October 9, 1953, Fulton, Missouri) is an American structural engineer known for engineering the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building/manmade structure.After obtaining a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Missouri, Baker held a brief tenure with ExxonMobil and later completed his master's degree at the University of Illinois. He then joined the prestigious architecture and engineering firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) in Chicago in 1981, eventually becoming a partner (1996). While widely regarded for his work on supertall buildings, Baker's expertise also extends to a wide variety of structures like the Broadgate-Exchange House (London, 1990), the GM Renaissance Center Entry Pavilion (Detroit, 2005), and Millennium Park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion and BP Pedestrian Bridge (Chicago, 2004).
