I haven't seen this posted yet, but I thought you all would be interested to know that the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat made public today the winners and finalists in each region for their 2013 Tall Building Awards. They also revealed the winners of the two lifetime achievement awards, the Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award, for architecture, and the Fazlur R. Khan Lifetime Achievement Medal, for engineering.


The regional winners were:
Americas - The Bow (Calgary)
Asia & Australasia - CCTV Headquarters (Beijing)
Europe - The Shard (London)
Middle East & Africa - Sowwah Square (Abu Dhabi)

The lifetime achievement award winners were:
Lynn Beedle Award - Henry Cobb
Fazlur Khan Medal - Clyde Baker


The full press release is located here:

I would have expected CCTV last year, but it deserves the award anyway.

Sowwah Square is awesome! Has a bit of an 80s look to it!
