“9/11 – Ten Years On : CTBUH Reflections”

In the week that we mark the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 events and the collapse of the World Trade Center towers, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has commissioned a number of articles from industry leaders, reflecting on how the world of tall buildings has changed since then. What has been the direct impact of 9/11 on the typology? How has that impact varied with geography and culture around the world? What has become of the predictions of the end of the skyscraper typology which immediately followed the event? Has too much changed, or too little?
