CTBUH Recognizes 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings for Its 50th Anniversary

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has revealed its list of "The 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years" in conjunction with the Council's 50th anniversary. The buildings will receive special recognition at the CTBUH 10th World Congress in Chicago on October 28 through November 2. The list includes many American skyscrapers built with structural steel: Sears Tower (now Willis Tower), One World Trade Center, the John Hancock Center (now 875 North Michigan Avenue), and many more. AISC will host a workshop and social event during the CTBUH World Congress. 

CTBUH received nominations from industry professionals across the globe for this iconic list. The history of skyscrapers dates back more than 120 years with an acceleration in tall building innovations occurring in the late 1960s. The recognized buildings either greatly influenced the design of tall buildings or became cultural landmarks. See the full list here
