This collection of abstracts serves as a gateway to the presentations given at the CTBUH 2017 Conference, which took place across Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, Australia, from 29 October to 3 November, 2017. The presentations upon which these abstracts are based inquire far beyond the tall building as an icon, to debate a new set of guidelines and responsibilities toward skyscrapers becoming “connectors” in the city. This is reinforced by the on-site visits and detailed design presentations of projects embraced in the conference program. The discussion embraces every discipline, from urban planning to cost consulting, architectural design to vertical transportation, real estate development to curtain wall design.
