MIAMI - On December 7, the CTBUH Florida Chapter hosted a Holiday Social as a meet and greet session for people in the construction industry at Gramps in Wynwood, Miami. The event was attended by roughly 30 people.
Attendees participate in a team trivia contest.
To kick off the holiday season, a skyline photo challenge was conducted by CTBUH Florida in the month of November, wherein participants had to send in their favorite shots of high-rises (completed or under construction) in the Greater Miami Area. After the deadline of December 1st, a shortlist of the top photos was compiled based on Facebook voting of the entries. These shortlisted photos were put up for a final round of voting at the Holiday Social, where all attendees got two votes each to decide the winner. Rogelio Martinez from Douglas Wood Associates won the laurel and was awarded a brand new hardcover copy of the CTBUH publication 100 of the World’s Tallest Buildings.
Rogelio Martinez, Douglas Wood Associates, was the winner of this year's tall-building photo contest.
Guests at the holiday social also had a chance to participate in a team-based trivia contest. The theme of the trivia questions endorsed CTBUH’s areas of interest – tall buildings and urban habitat. Evan Prado, Alfredo Morales, and Yves Siroit from Desimone Consulting Engineers, and Luis Mendieta from McNamara Salvia Structural Engineers were part of the winning team. They were each awarded CTBUH posters and free movie tickets. The shortlisted finalists for the photo contest included: Yaqueline Morejon, Audrey Levi, Dan Freed, Deborah Munoz, Eddy Diaz, Jorge Alvarez, Juan Urdaneta, Kia Hajifathalian, Luis Ramirez,Sergio Gonzalez, and Sevag Mehtarian.
