Including tall buildings, urban contributions, technologies and innovations, the winners now move on to compete in front of a live audience and live juries for “Best in Category” honors at the CTBUH Tall + Urban Innovation Conference on April 8-10 in Shenzhen, China. Projects in the Best Tall Building category fall into five height thresholds (under 100 m, 100-199 m, 200-299 m, 300-399 m, and 400 m and above).
