The buildings nominated for the International High-Rise Award 2022/23 have now been announced. Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) has selected them from more than 1,000 new high-rises worldwide dating from the past two years. In autumn, the five finalists will be announced. Then, on November 8, 2022, the winner of the International High-Rise Award will be presented in the Paulskirche (St. Paul’s Church) in Frankfurt/Main.
Projects from 13 countries were nominated for the International High-Rise Award 2022/23. The candidates are 23 high-rises from four continents. Four of the towers are located in Europe, two of these in Germany – One and Senckenberg Quartier, both in Frankfurt/Main. In a similar way to the situation two years ago, a considerable decline in high-rises completed was to be observed. In many countries, delays occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with both the associated supply chain problems and labor shortages.
Nevertheless, as in previous years, it was still the case that now here in the world were as many high-rises erected as in China. It was here that approximately every third new building which meets the brief of being at least 100 meters high was to be found and nowadays it is increasingly local architectural practices that are being commissioned with the designs.
However, in other parts of the world, too, the “high-rise” is becoming an ever-more established type, as is obvious from a glance at the buildings nominated.
