The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is the world’s leading resource for professionals focused on the design and construction of tall buildings and future cities. Based at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the not-for-profit group, founded in 1969, facilitates the exchange of the latest multi-discipline knowledge available on tall buildings around the world through events, publications, and its extensive network of international representatives.  At the same time, the Council’s research department is spearheading the investigation of the next generation of tall buildings by aiding original research on sustainability and key development issues.
The Council also maintains the world’s largest free database on tall buildings, The Skyscraper Center, which is updated daily with detailed information, images and news on thousands of tall buildings around the world. In addition, the CTBUH developed the international standards for measuring tall building height and is recognized as the arbiter for bestowing such designations as “The World’s Tallest Building.”
