CTBUH Research


The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is elevating the urban discourse through its Research & Thought Leadership division. This division leverages the organization’s authoritative knowledge of the tall building industry and the world’s most comprehensive skyscraper database to generate meaningful insights into the built environment. It performs objective research at all scales and distributes findings in the form of technical guidelines, white papers, data studies, and reports that highlight critical issues facing tall buildings and future cities. 


The division’s goal is to honor the Council’s commitment to providing valuable information to decision-makers, professionals, and researchers that enables positive outcomes for urban realms around the world.
