The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has called for entries for its third annual International Student Tall Building Design Competition.
The goal of the competition is to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society. In light of global climate change, public awareness of urban sustainability has forced designers to rethink and reinvent the role of the high-rise building type. They must contribute to the protection of endangered environments and oﬀer sustainable alternatives to how cities operate, as they meet the growing demands of urban dwelling and reshaping the landscape of modern cities. It is increasingly important that tall buildings connect with the urban fabric, integrating with the existing city/street life, and reﬂect the nature of the city in which they are built.
The registration deadline is Monday 23 June 2014 .
