The CTBUH Awards recognize individuals and projects that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level. The first annual Tall + Urban Innovation Conference, held from May 30-31 in Chicago, builds on the success of the CTBUH Awards Program to encompass an engaging two-day event modeled after the Council’s annual conference. The event explores and celebrates the very best in innovative tall buildings, urban spaces, building technologies, and construction practices from around the world. The owner/developers and design teams for 46 finalist projects will compete in front of an international audience and live juries for distinctions in eight award categories.
