The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is pleased to announce the awarding of the 2014 International Research Seed Funding grant to a team led by the University of Southern California School of Architecture.

This year’s recipients will receive a grant of $20,000, kindly sponsored by ECADI, to conduct research on façade retrofits for tall buildings. The research project, entitled “Tall Building Façade Retrofit: A Database Of Completed Projects,” will be supervised by Prof. Douglas Noble, and the team will include Andrea Martinez, Mic Patterson and Karen Kensek. Martinez took the stage at the 2014 Conference dinner on Sept. 17th to accept an oversized check from former CTBUH Chairman Timothy Johnson and ECADI Chairman Junjie Zhang.

The CTBUH 2014 International Research Seed Funding Initiative continues to be a key milestone for the advancement of the CTBUH’s Research Division. The Initiative is created to assist researchers in developing projects and ideas to a level that can secure more significant funding, in the form of collaborations and joint proposals, in conjunction with the CTBUH.
