On November 15, 2012 the International Highrise Award was bestowed by the City of Frankfurt\Main in cooperation with DAM and DekaBank for the fifth time in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt. The prize was awarded to Christoph Ingenhoven and Ray Brown for the office highrise "1 Bligh Street" in Sydney. DAM had nominated 26 buildings in 17 countries, which were built all over the world in the last two years. An international jury of architects, real estate experts, architecture critics, and civil engineers selected the winner and four finalists, and for the first time awarded a Special Commendation for the refurbishment of a highrise. All the buildings nominated will be showcased in the Best Highrises 2012\13 exhibition. The wining highrise, the edifices designed by the five finalists and the renovated structure will be documented in detail in the exhibition by means of models, large photos, drawings, texts, and films.
