Best Highrises: The International Highrise Award 2016: 2016/17

    In times of growing metropolises and ever denser urban structures, the high-rise typology is more in demand and more necessary than ever. Building upwards is inevitable. For a long time, high-rises have housed not only offices and residential units, instead their innovative concepts also combine other usages such as train stations, shopping malls, or parks. Aspects such as sustainability, energy, and cost efficiency are of increasing importance, as well as sensitive integration into the urban context. The International Highrise Award is bestowed every two years to an outstanding building that displays a special esthetic, pioneering design, innovative technology and profitability. The publication presents the award winner, as well as all 30 nominated projects from 14 countries, among others by Zaha Hadid, Lord Norman Foster or Richard Meier, with photos and plans. With this it documents current and significant trends in worldwide high-rise architecture.
