This collection of abstracts serves as a gateway to the presentations given at the CTBUH 10th World Congress, which took place from 28 October to 2 November 2019. The presentations upon which these abstracts are based inquired into a more sustainable future for our cities, considered the most important tall building innovations from the past, and expounded upon the current approach to a more human-scaled urban habitat.
We stand at a critical juncture in time, amidst major change in the typological status of tall buildings, the cities they call home, and the people that inhabit them. These abstracts represent a critical reflection on both the skyscraper typology and urban development, by marking their trajectory to date, and considering the evolutions that must take place to accommodate a dynamic and uncertain global future.
