With an unprecedented number of entries this year, the CTBUH Awards Committee had much to deliberate. The jury also selected the 2010 recipients of the Council’s two lifetime achievement awards: William Pedersen of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award) and Ysrael A. Seinuk, Ysrael A. Seinuk, P.C. (Fazlur Khan Lifetime Achievement Medal). Both men were selected for their lifetime’s work to the advancement of Tall Buildings, with their portfolios including many seminal, iconic skyscrapers.

This year’s winners will be recognized, and the awards conferred, at the CTBUH 9th Annual Awards Dinner & Ceremony which will take place at the Illinois Institute of Technology in the Crown Hall, Chicago, on the evening of Thursday 21st October. All the winning projects and finalists will be celebrated at this gala event. Additionally, from the four regional best tall building winners, one “Overall” winner will be chosen and announced at the ceremony. All dinner attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the CTBUH 2010 Awards Book on the night.

This year the awards dinner will take place in conjunction with an afternoon Symposium which will be focused on the four regional best tall buildings, and the two lifetime achievement award winners.
