2017 Awards Program Expanding – Awards Event in May 2018

The timing for the 2017 CTBUH Awards program has been adjusted in order to accommodate a significantly enhanced two-stage winner/finalist selection process and the expansion of the annual Awards event into a two-day conference to be held in Chicago in May 2018. From 2017, Best Tall Building Award Regional Finalists, Urban Habitat Award Finalists, Innovation Award Finalists, and Construction Award Finalists will be selected by the jury and all asked to present at the Awards Conference to determine each category’s Winner. The honor of overall Best Tall Building “Worldwide” is also judged based on the Finalist presentations at the Awards Conference. Once the jury determines the four Regional Winners, they are also judged against one another with the Overall Worldwide winner announced at the close of the Ceremony & Dinner.
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. 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
