CTBUH appoints architect as new chairman


Architect Tim Johnson has been elected chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), the international body for high-rise towers.

Johnson will succeed current chairman, structural engineer Sang Dae Kim, at a ceremony during the CTBUH Seoul Conference from 10-12 October 2011.

He commented: “As a tall building ‘junkie’ I am passionate about tall buildings and city building and will continue to emphasise the urban habitat as a crucial aspect of this organisation.


“As an architect, one of my roles in the design and construction industry is to be the keeper of the vision, a conductor, and catalyst. I believe strongly in the fundamental nature of a multi-disciplinary practice and the value of that basis for the council, and will continue to promote and inspire that among our members.”

Johnson is a design partner for NBBJ where he leads the firm’s international commercial design practice. He will chair CTBUH until October 2013.
