The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has launched The Skyscraper Center, an online resource for data and information on tall buildings.
It contains detailed profiles and images on every completed building in the world taller than 200m, as well as thousands of other buildings in various stages of development.
Users can determine the size-ranking, as well as the latest news and data on each tower.
“The new site builds on our database compiled through 40 years of research and adds valuable new functions, new information and extensive assets for both professionals and non-professionals exploring the world of skyscrapers,” said Timothy Johnson, chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
“The site is interactive,” said Nathanial Hollister, CTBUH production coordinator and leader of the database project. “We encourage people to send in new information and images on projects.”
CTBUH plans to add several significant new elements to the site in the next few months, including city and country profiles which will provide detailed graphs and statistics on specific regions, he said.
CTBUH is a not-for-profit organisation based on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology.
