global urbanization approaching  200,000 people every day, the need for a new or extended city of a million inhabitants every week is driving massive growth in hundreds of Asian cities simultaneously

The CTBUH is the world’s leading body in the field of tall buildings and the recognized source of information on tall buildings internationally.

It is the arbiter of the criteria upon which tall building height is measured, and thus the title of “The World’s Tallest Building” determined.

Brief

That the 21st Century will be the age of the Asian Skyscraper seems indisputable.

Already, the past two decades have witnessed a major shift in tall buildings from west to east. Many of the major advances in the tall typology are now taking place in Asia, often with a collaboration of eastern and western expertise.

With global urbanization approaching  200,000 people every day, the need for a new or extended city of a million inhabitants every week is driving massive growth in hundreds of Asian cities simultaneously – from Mecca to Manila, Istanbul to Incheon, Karachi to Kunming.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat brings its 9th World Congress to the dynamic skyscraper city of Shanghai to examine these poignant issues.

Is the skyscraper a sustainable building type?

Can tall buildings truly reduce and harvest enough energy to become carbon-neutral?

What is the full impact on the city and the lives of its inhabitants by developing skyward?

And what support mechanisms and urban infrastructure are required for such growth?

Congress Themes

As well as the central Congress theme of “Asia Ascending: Age of the Sustainable Skyscraper City,” there will be three themed tracks running across the three-day event:

  • Track 1: Planning & Infrastructure for Sustainable Skyscraper Cities
  • Track 2: Best-Practice Urban and Building Case Studies: Asia
