CTBUH: The 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years
 
The 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years

https://ctbuh2019.com/other-info/50-...ial-buildings/

- The skyscraper has a history extending back more than 120 years, but it entered a new phase of innovation and acceleration in the late 1960s.

- The tall buildings captured here are selected on the same criteria, through the combined input of the CTBUH Research and Data team, CTBUH Leaders, and a call to the member constituency at large.

- Each represents a milestone in the development of the typology, tracking the development of the tall building from a predominantly commercial office tower with repetitive floor plates, to a “vertical city” with the mix of uses, variation in façade materials, and variety of interior and exterior spaces implied by the title.

- Across these examples, we see the arrival and departure of the distinct International and Post-Modern styles, as well as the overlapping parametricism and contextualism that dominates the contemporary scene.

- We see the transition from symbols of North American corporate power to broadcasting devices for the arrival of entire cities and countries on the global stage.

- The importance of environmental sustainability takes on as important a role as cultural and economic longevity.

I'm not happy about their omission of the Inland Steel Building here in Chicago. . . seems like a top 50 "favorite" buildings rather than truly influential. . . I dunno. . .

I see they mention 1WTC, but they should also acknowledge the original Twin Towers. Putting aside their destruction, they were the worlds tallest from 1972-1974, and Philippe Petit made international attention with his tightrope walk between the two towers. Talk about influential!
