Best Highrises 2012/2013: The International Highrise Award 2012.
Schmal, Peter Cachola and Michaela Busenkell.
Best Highrises 2012/2013: The International Highrise Award 2012.
Every two years, the German Museum of Architecture (DAM) introduces the world's best high-rises from the previous two years as part of the International Highrise Award. This year's nominees, 26 high-rises from 17 countries, were either erected within the past two years or are now very close to completion. In recent times, the centre stage for new high-rises has shifted from the United States to Asia. The publication includes all of the nominated high-rises as documented with plans, photos and building descriptions. Record heights and construction are not the only important aspects of international high-rise construction. The projects will be used to introduce current developments with regard to building technology, design, but also sustainability and urban planning. Even the changing use of these towers becomes evident in the growing number of high-rises developed not only as office buildings, but also for mixed-function or housing purposes.
