CTBUH Year in Review 2015: The Year of 100 Supertalls

- Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tongji University, Shanghai
As more than half of the global population are now living in cities, skyscrapers are becoming the backbone of our urban fabric. There is now a wealth of opportunity to construct innovative buildings that are resource and energy efficient. What is the current industry status for tall buildings around the world?
The China Office / Asia Headquarters of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is pleased to announce an event commemorating the release of the pre-eminent annual report on tall-building activity around the world: “Year in Review.”
The event will feature a presentation by CTBUH China Office Director Daniel Safarik, discussing the impact of China on the world skyscraper spectrum, with opportunities to ask questions and to live-query The Skyscraper Center database to go “beyond the headlines.” A networking reception will take place before and after the presentation.
CTBUH uses its vast member network and The Skyscraper Center database to compile a fascinating report each year on the state of the world’s tall building industry. In 2015, CTBUH determined that 106 buildings of 200 meters’ height or greater were completed around the world – setting a new record for annual tall building completions.
Also in 2015, for the first time, the world now has more than 100 “supertalls,” – buildings of 300 meters’ height or greater. China became the host of the world’s second-tallest building, and the world’s third “megatall” (building of 600 meters’ height or more), Shanghai Tower. In 2015, a total of 58% of the world’s tall-building completions over 200 meters were in China.
