  Donald E Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont IL


CTBUH Chief Executive Officer Antony Wood will deliver the keynote presentation at the AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo, a conference which attracts leading professionals and experts from across the AEC industry, including architecture, engineering, plumbing, and HVAC.

Wood, who has directed the Council since 2006, will be presenting on Thursday, 2 May, addressing the topic Vertical Cities of the Future: What is Truly Sustainable? This presentation will speak to the coming challenges of tall building design in the face of a continuously urbanizing world – tall buildings will be required not only to enable density, but also to incorporate unprecedented levels of multidimensional integration. By drawing on a number of pioneering studies carried out over recent years at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Wood will examine potential futures of the global urban environment and evaluate possibilities for different visions of urban sustainability and resilience.
