The best tall buildings of 2014

Awards jury chair Jeanne Gang says this year's submissions reflect "the incredbile diversity of tall buildings" around the world.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) recently announced the winners for Best Tall Buildings of 2014.

A press release from the council says the buildings were judged based on a project's "contribution to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment", and for "achieving sustainability at the broadest level".

Moreover, other factors such as"eccentric shapes, new programs and uses [that] challenge traditional perceptions of tall buildings" or greenery at height influenced the panel's decision.

The four regional winners are: The Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, Portland, USA (Americas); One Central Park, Sydney, Australia (Asia & Australia); De Rotterdam, Rotterdam, Netehrlands (Europe);  and Cayan Tower, Dubai, UAE (Middle East & Africa).

An overall winner for the “Best Tall Building Worldwide” will be named during the CTBUH 13th Annual Awards Symposium at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago on November 6.
