International High-Rise Award 2022/23: 34 High-Rise Projects Nominated Globally

by | Wednesday, 27. July 2022

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 nowhere 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.

Geographical distribution of the 34 nominees:

9x China
8x USA
2x Canada

7 x from other parts of Asia:
2x Japan
2x Saudi Arabia
1x Singapore
1x Sri Lanka
1x South Korea

4x Europe:
2x Germany
1x UK
1x Austria
3x Australia

1x Afrika:
Algeria

The Award

The International High-Rise Award is presented for a high-rise that combines sustainability, external design, and internal use of space and takes full consideration of social and urban planning-related aspects in order to create an exemplary design. Further criteria are innovative engineering and cost-effectiveness. The International High-Rise Award is considered one of the world’s most important architecture awards for high-rises. It is aimed at architects and developers whose buildings are at least 100 meters in height and were completed over the past two years.

The award has been organized jointly by the City of Frankfurt/Main, Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and DekaBank since 2004. It was initiated in response to the global boom in this key discipline that has been observable since the start of the new millennium. The International High-Rise Award will be presented for the 10th time in November 2022 which makes this a jubilee year for the award.
