Join the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), in association with the Jakarta Property Institute and hosted by Farpoint featuring their Sequis Tower project, for the launch of the CTBUH Indonesia Chapter and an investigation into the past, present, and future of skyscrapers in the region.
If population growth in Indonesia continues along its current trajectory, the country will have the third largest population in the world by 2043 following China and India. This trend, in tandem with the country’s restricted island geography, represent clear limitations to the horizontal growth of its cities. Thus, the tall building is becoming a critical tool for urban development, but how can the region implement these projects with due regard for local economic, cultural, and environmental realities?
Mr. Dougie Crichton, Technical Advisor, Farpoint, will share details on his company’s tall building projects in the country, while CTBUH Executive Director Antony Wood will frame the local tall building phenomenon with respect to global trends in vertical urbanism.
