These are 'The 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years'

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has published a list of "The 50 Most Influential Tall Buildings of the Last 50 Years" ahead of its 10th World Congress happening in Chicago next week. Celebrating the organization’s 50th anniversary this year, the high-profile roundup places special focus on the accelerated new phase of innovation that has been happening in skyscraper construction since the late 1960s.

"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," declares the CTBUH announcement.

"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."

Besides the obvious picks (Burj Khalifa, One World Trade Center, Petronas Towers, TAIPEI 101), the list of the 50 selected skyscrapers and tall buildings contains some beloved golden oldies (Transamerica Pyramid Center, The Lloyd’s Building, the former John Hancock Center and AT&T Building) as well as a few new kids on the block (Salesforce Tower, Lotte World Tower, Bosco Verticale).
