Engage with Over 16 Cities Across the Globe
As the world adapts to the evolving COVID-19 crisis, a new template for the kinds of cities we need is developing, one that requires more flexibility in the way homes and workplaces are designed and more intentionality in how healthy living is supported. Critical decisions grappling with the carbon footprint of the built environment must be made, with their effectiveness measured against the health of the urban realm. Most crucially, a new appreciation has formed for human-scale details as the key ingredient to a thriving and resilient city.

As the opportunity to convene physically becomes more realistic in certain parts of the world, CTBUH is excited to return to an in-person format for its 2021 Conference, which will focus on the challenges facing our cities through the central themes of Carbon, Climate, Society, and The Future City.
These discussions transcend a single location, as issues of this scope affect regions around the world in contextually-unique ways. The 2021 Conference will take place across over 16 cities over the course of a week, with an expected attendance of several hundred top delegates at each gathering, to help steer a local dialogue on these paramount global subjects. Through half-day, full-day, and two-day events consisting of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, interviews, building tours, and in-person networking receptions, cities will engage in a parallel global discourse about the future of the urban realm.
Join us this November for The Future City: Addressing Carbon, Climate & Societal Crises, as we drive urgent solutions for equitable and resilient future cities at the CTBUH 2021 Conference, taking place across over 16 cities including Chicago, San José, Toronto, Colombo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taipei, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Berlin/Frankfurt/Stuttgart, Copenhagen, London, and Vienna.
Conference topics will include:
Reducing embodied and operating carbon, carbon capture and sequestration, end-of-life carbon, or the role of mass timber in the carbon conversation.
• Climate: Change, Challenges, and Choices
Urban resilience, resilient buildings, green walls and façades, or natural ventilation in tall buildings.
• Society: Sustainability, Safety, and Sensitivity
Affordable cities, infrastructure for equity, the built environment’s impact on human health, and culturally responsive design.
• The Future City: Flexibility, Collaboration, and Circular Design
Human well-being as design guide, holistic high-density design, disaster survivability, flexible work/live spaces, and adaptive public space.
