The CTBUH Annual Awards program recognizes projects, practices, and individuals that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability and human well-being at the highest and broadest level. The objective is to deliver a comprehensive and sophisticated view of these important buildings, spaces, actions, and technologies, while advocating for improvements in every aspect of their performance, especially those that have the greatest impact on the people who use them each day. This means that the buildings highlighted are often not the tallest in a given year, but represent the best qualities and innovations in the typology. Award-winning projects are recognized at the annual CTBUH International Conference, where Award of Excellence winners in each category present their projects to an international audience and live juries. All winners will be recognized throughout and at the close of the Conference.
The submission deadline for the 2024 CTBUH Awards Program is 9 February 2024.
Judged by an international panel of experts, the Awards Program recognizes projects in many categories and subcategories, including Best Tall Building, Urban Habitat, Innovation, Structure, and Construction. 2023 Award of Excellence winners can be viewed here. The program aspires to provide a more comprehensive and sophisticated view of these industry-leading projects, drive improvements in every aspect of performance, and showcase those that deliver the greatest benefit to the individuals and communities who interact with them.
Winners in all categories will present their projects at the CTBUH 2024 International Conference, New or Renew—The Density Dilemma, where the overall winner in each category will be announced. Submissions are also considered for inclusion in our Tall+Urban publication, an annual compendium highlighting the year’s most innovative and pioneering projects.
