Commencing in the late 19th century, cities such as Chicago and New York lead in the invention and development of the high-rise building typology, as we know it today. Given their as-built legacies and the relatively recent concerns revolving around sustainability and embodied carbon; it is understandable that New York and Chicago also lead the way in the retention, refurbishment and repurposing of this building type. This year’s seminar is pleased to have presentations by the project teams of three genuine 20th century icons, which are now repositioned to extend their legacies well into the 21st century!
