About this Conference

As the world moves toward becoming 70 percent urbanized by 2050, expansive thinking and planning needs to be undertaken now, urgently, in order to ensure that cities can be places where people can thrive. To achieve this, we must do more than simply increase density—we need to integrate tall buildings into the urban and societal fabric, such that they become part of the physical and cultural infrastructure as never before. Transportation, public facilities, open space and commercial functions all need to be holistically synchronized and pivoted toward positive, sustainable outcomes for a much broader swath of society.

The CTBUH 2020 International Conference, Humanizing High Density—People, Nature & the Urban Realm, focuses on the essential question of how high density can support equitable and healthy living, working and social well-being. It brings issues of livability to the forefront of the discourse about future cities, concerned with achieving equity in housing, making better social spaces at multiple horizons, reducing carbon emissions, mitigating the effects of climate change, and developing architecture and urban designs that are appropriate for local environmental and cultural conditions.
