The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is now accepting submissions for its 8th International Student Tall Building Design Competition – culminating with the top finalists presenting in real time for winning distinctions at the CTBUH 2019 World Congress to be held in Chicago, from 28 October to 2 November 2019.
The goal of the 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. Moreover, participants should engage with the exploration and resolution of the synergistic relationship between a tall building and its urban setting; how that tall building can be inspired by the cultural, physical, and environmental aspects of its site; how the program of the building is influenced by the micro and macro site/urban conditions; as well as, how the building responds to global issues. Further, proposals should show evidence of a clear understanding of how considerations of structure, environment, servicing, etc. are as vital to the success of a tall building as the form, materials, aesthetics, etc.
The winner of the Tall Building Design International competition will win:
Moreover, the five finalists will receive a stipend of up to $3000 to attend the CTBUH Tall Building Design competition.

The deadline for the CTBUH Tall Building Design Competition is on 15 July 2019.
