CTBUH Awards’2021 announced Lakhta Center a four-time winner
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) announced the winners of the 18th Annual CTBUH Awards Program. These winning projects—comprising tall buildings, urban developments, and technical innovations—competed for winning distinctions at the 2021 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference from 18 to 20 May, which took place virtually.
Competing against 160 other world-class finalists, Lakhta Center was awarded a special audience prize and trophy as the “Best Tall Building in Europe”, “Best Tall Building 400+ Meters”, and Construction Award. Also Lakhta Center received the “Best in Façade Engineering” Award at the event.
CTBUH is the world’s leading resource on tall buildings for architects, engineers, and builders of skyscrapers.
The 462 meters high Lakhta Center skyscraper, built at the end of 2018, located in St. Petersburg on the shores of the Baltic Sea, is the tallest building in Europe and the world’s tallest northern skyscraper. The tower has 87 overground and 2 underground floors. The tower building in the plan is a five-pointed star, the rays of which diverge from the central nucleus and has a twisted conical shape. The architectural and technical solutions of the unique complex, on which the team of architects, designers and engineers of GORPROJECT has been working since 2011, are innovative in many aspects.
Congratulations to all colleagues on the award and well-deserved recognition!
