Panel Discussion

4:00 PM – 5:30 PM

As the global arbiters of height, CTBUH has made a lasting impact on the tall building industry over its first 50 years. From passing the crown of “world’s tallest” to the Petronas Towers from the former Sears Tower in 1996, to updating its height criteria to incorporate the rising popularity of timber as a tall building structural material, the Council has continued to evolve its standards as the demands of a growing urban population concerned with resource conservation have changed. Join prominent and founding figures in CTBUH history to hear about the origins and future of the CTBUH legacy.
