CTBUH – Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat

On the 50th anniversary of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s founding, the CTBUH 10th World Congress returns to the Council’s home, and birthplace of the skyscraper: Chicago. Focusing on the theme “50 Forward; 50 Back”, the Congress will explore the most significant advancements in tall buildings and cities from the last 50 years, whilst inquiring into the future of our cities 50 years from now. This event thus represents a critical reflection on both the skyscraper typology, and urban development as a whole, by marking their trajectory to date, and considering the evolutions that must take place to accommodate a dynamic and uncertain global future.
