Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat

For the first ever CTBUH Photo Contest, we asked participants to submit photos through Instagram with the hashtag #CTBUHPhotoContest from February 28 to April 1, 2018.

Skyscrapers have come a long way since the first was constructed in 1885; they’ve achieved staggering heights, incorporated powerful technologies, and become defining components of city skylines around the world. The next major challenge, it seems, is to consider how tall buildings can become better stewards of their urban surroundings, rather than just vertical extensions of an efficient floor plan.

Therefore, we encouraged participants to photograph tall buildings and cities in general, and provide a brief explanation in the caption.
