Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Lecture Recap

The third part of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Lecture (CTBUH) / Chicago Architecture Foundation’s (CAF) joint skyscraper lecture series brought together a diverse group of speakers from different perspectives to discuss how to achieve a greater symbiosis between tall buildings and cities at the urban scale. The speakers included Jim Burnett, President, OJB Landscape Architecture; Chan-li Lin, Partner, Rafael Viñoly Architects; James Loewenberg, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Magellan Development; Richard Pulling, Vice President – Sales, Otis Elevator Company; and Antony Wood, Executive Director, CTBUH, fielding a long stream of thought-provoking questions. The panel discussion that followed was interesting and informative, with the subject of amenities fueling much of the conversation.
