CTBUH reveals best tall building worldwide and winners of 2018 tall building awards
The winners for the Council on Tall Building and Urban Habitat’s Tall Building Awards are out. The CTBUH selects the best tall building from four different areas, Asia & Australasia, Middle East & Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Other awards include the Urban Habitat Award, the Construction Award, the Ten Year Award, the Innovation Award, and the Best Tall Building Worldwide Award. The American Copper Buildings in New York City took home the title for Best Tall Building Americas. The principal of SHoP architects, Greg Pasquarelli, noted that one of the firm’s favorite features of the project was indeed the skybridge, which features a lap pool, allowing residents to swim from one tower to another while enjoying city and river views. The building also incorporates many sustainable features and systems to withstand extreme weather.
