Elevating the Urban Discourse.
The Research & Thought Leadership division of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) 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.
INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH SEED FUNDING
The Research Seed Funding is to assist talented researchers in developing projects/ideas to a level that would secure additional, more significant, funding–in conjunction with the CTBUH. Proposals should relate to the tall building typology / urban habitat, but is open to any topic/discipline.
STUDENT RESEARCH COMPETITION
The Student Research Competition is to assist talented students, working in groups under the guidance of a professor, to focus on a relevant research question, and create an engaging “output” as a response. Proposals can come from any topic/discipline, but should relate to the theme.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION
The Student Design Competition, which is open to all students who are currently enrolled at the university level, is to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society. Participants should engage with the exploration and resolution of the synergistic relationship between a tall building and its urban setting.
The CTBUH research platform accommodates a wide variety of subjects and scales, while its vast network of industry leaders and city-shapers offers the ideal promotional stage upon project delivery.
