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 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.
Delegates can engage with the conference for two, three, four, or all six days!
Numerous CTBUH Committee and Leader meetings—as well as on-site registration and workshops—will occur on Monday 28 October.
The core conference of speaker and poster presentations, regional rooms, panel discussions and social networking events will occur on Tuesday 29 & Wednesday 30 October.
A stand-alone First Skyscrapers | Skyscraper Firsts” symposium, as well as “off-site programs” across numerous tall building and urban venues in Chicago will take place on Thursday 31 October.
Then, for those wanting to travel on to see the very best of urban development in other cities in North America, there will be 1.5 days of regional city programs in various cities in the United States and surrounding countries.
