The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has launched its 2020 annual awards program. The organization will accept nominations for tall building and urban habitat projects across a multitude of categories and disciplines.
The awards recognize projects and individuals that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level.
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has conferred its prestigious 2019 Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award to global architecture firm Goettsch Partners’ chairman and co-CEO, James Goettsch, FAIA.
Mjøstårnet, a mixed-use building in Brumunddal, Norway, is the world’s tallest timber building. At 85.4 m (280 ft), it is also the third-tallest building in Norway and the country’s tallest with mixed functions. The 18-floor building includes a hotel, private homes, and office space.
