BEST HGHRISES – The International Highrise Award 2010

6 November 2010 to 16 January 2011

On November 5, 2010 the international Highrise award was bestowed for the fourth time by the City of Frankfurt/Main in collaboration with DAM and DekaBank. This time "The Met", a high-rise apartment building in Bangkok, Thailand, has won the prize, worth EUR 50,000, for the world's most innovative high-rise. Extremely efficient both ecologically and in economic terms, the jury expects the structure of this building "to prove ground-breaking on a global scale in the search for innovative local approaches to design." Over 20 of the outstanding highrises built worldwide over the past two years were nominated for the prize. From them an international jury of architects, real estate experts and architecture critics selected five finalists and the winner. The prize winner, the edifices that made the shortlist of the last five and other nominated buildings are documented in detail in the exhibition.
