As the recognized international authority on tall buildings, CTBUH conferences differ significantly from the many commercial conferences that are now being held around the world, in terms of both quality of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities. Dissemination of best-practice information is of primary importance at every CTBUH conference. Thus, every presentation given at the 2015 Conference was substantiated by a paper, which was rigorously peer-reviewed and published in the conference proceeding: a series of high-quality books which form an important historical archive long after the event has ended. At the 2015 Conference this constituted four separate books, totaling 1,336 pages in combined length. Every New York 2015 delegate received a digital copy of the 2015 books, with an option to purchase in hard copy in advance of the conference, or at the event itself.
2015 New York Conference Proceedings
This publication draws together papers presented at the CTBUH 2015 New York Conference, which examine the interconnectedness and unprecedented vertical growth of the skyscraper city; the motivations and mechanisms that are enabling multi-national investment scenarios; and the technical innovations that are driving new heights, forms, materials, and construction techniques. The publication investigates what this means for skyscrapers of the future as they become more adaptable to the sustainable and technological challenges of the age.
