Leader Presentation Video:

Antony Wood, CTBUH Executive Director, gives a presentation on the aesthetics of tall buildings and sustainability to the Australian Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat at a Breakfast Seminar in Brisbane, Australia. This presentation outlines the viability of the tall building as a sustainable element in our future urban centres and examines several tall building case studies that have embraced environmental approaches to a lesser or greater degree. In doing this, it suggests a number of design approaches which, collectively and broadly, could be interpreted as a new vernacular for the skyscraper based on sustainability.
