CTBUH Names Lifetime Achievement Winners and 2016 Fellows

This year the CTBUH Board of Trustees will award the Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Cheong Koon Hean and the Fazlur R. Khan Lifetime Achievement Medal will be awarded to Ron Klemencic. The CTBUH is also pleased to recognize three new CTBUH Fellows.
The CTBUH Awards recognize projects and individuals 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. Tall buildings can be polarizing presences in their cities, admired for their sheer height or skyline silhouettes, and criticized for their poor environmental performance and street-level experience. The objective of this awards program is to deliver a comprehensive and sophisticated view of these important buildings, while advocating for improvements in every aspect of their performance, especially those that have the greatest effect on the people who use these buildings each day. This often means that the buildings highlighted are often not the tallest in a given year, but represent the best qualities and innovations in the typology. Learn More
