The Future of Sustainable
Tall Buildings

This two-day conference will convene the leading international experts in steel and timber design & construction, to explore how the benefits of each can be utilized to advance tall steel-timber hybrid buildings. Organized by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), with the support of both constructsteel, a World Steel Association programme, and the Softwood Lumber Board (SLB), the conference is an essential element in the two-year CTBUH research project, “The Future Potential of Steel-Timber Hybrid Buildings,” sponsored by constructsteel and SLB.

Sub-topics to be presented include all aspects of the development, design, construction, and operation of steel-timber hybrid buildings, with a view to these combined technologies enabling greater height and better carbon, economic, human and social outcomes in such buildings into the future. The event will be held in Mies van der Rohe’s seminal Crown Hall, on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Chicago.


The conference will take place at IIT, in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's S. R. Crown Hall, home to the College of Architecture, and a modern masterpiece that Time magazine calls "one of the world's most influential, inspiring and astonishing structures."
