Five SOM Projects Win CTBUH 2023 Awards of Excellence


The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has announced five SOM projects as winners of their annual Awards of Excellence across a range of categories.†

SOMís research project, Urban Sequoia, received an Innovation Award for its nature-inspired design that allows buildings to act like trees by capturing carbon, purifying the air, and regenerating the environment.

800 Fulton Market was awarded Best Tall Building under 100 meters. Located in Chicago, the mixed-use workplace features stepped terraces and an innovative structural design featuring an external X-braced frame that enables large, open floor plates and flexible, light-filled workspaces.

Pearl River Tower was honored with the prestigious 10-year award, which recognizes proven value and performance over a period of time. This building in Guangzhou set new benchmarks in ecological design of supertall towers, with wind turbines that have the potential to produce as much energy as the building consumes.†

Recognizing projects set to shape city skylines, Suzhou Supertall and 8 Shenton Way received Future Project Awards. The Chinese city of Suzhou will soon include a 460-meter tower composed of three slender volumes with a series of sky bridges. In Singapore, 8 Shenton Way will be the cityís tallest building and also Asiaís most sustainable skyscraper, with biophilic design elements and materials designed to minimize embodied and operational carbon.†

This year, CTBUHís Annual Conference will explore the theme of ĎHumanizing High Density,í focusing on projects that advance the premise that high-density urbanization can support healthy living, working, and civic and social engagement. SOMís Jonathan Stein, Leo Chow, Nic Medrano, Vram Malek, and Yue Zhu, will be attending the conference in Singapore to receive each of these accolades.†
