CEO Ray Brown joining CTBUH global forum on vertical urbanism
At the upcoming Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) conference in Chicago from 9-12 November, Architectus CEO Ray Brown will join the debate on new directions in tall buildings and urbanism, along with some of the world’s leading designers, developers and other experts in the field.
An architect for 35 years and advocate for innovative and sustainable development, Ray will chair the CTBUH jury selecting the ‘Best Tall Building Australia’ award, and will present the recently released vision for the regeneration of the Central Station precinct in Sydney.
This year’s conference theme, ‘Tall Excellence: Seeking the Ideal in Vertical Urbanism’, will prompt participants to re-think conventional ideas about towers – looking beyond form and function to consider their contribution to more sustainable, liveable, and equitable urban spaces.
“I’m looking forward to being immersed in solving current urbanism challenges, hearing about opportunities for innovation, and recognising those who are leading the way,” says Ray.
