The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has named Skyscraper Museum founder Carol Willis and atelier ten founder Parick Bellew as this year’s winners of the Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award and Fazlur R. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award, respectively over their outstanding individual contributions to the community of architectural design.
CTBUH CEO Javier Quintana de Una explained: “This year’s lifetime achievement awardees represent some of the most vibrant minds in the field of sustainable vertical urbanism. Carol Willis has been a steadfast champion for the critical role high-rise buildings play in tackling population density in cities around the world, both today and historically. And there is perhaps no one more well-versed in the integration of environmental and building systems with architecture than Patrick Bellew. We look forward to honoring their enduring commitment to these estimable undertakings in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur."
Willis (recipient of the 2023 Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award) stood out as an architectural historian and writer in addition to curating more than 30 exhibitions in her tenure at the museum. She will deliver a keynote opening at the CTBUH International Conference titled “Density Is Human by Definition: Key Issues and Vertical Solutions,” which covers the concept of vertical density with depth and critical detail.

Bellew (recipient of the 2023 Fazlur R. Khan Lifetime Achievement Award) is currently the William Henry Bishop Visiting Professor at the Yale University School of Architecture and will present the conference’s keynote closing address, “Living Environments: Building Systems Around Nature and High-Performance" wherein he presents a variety of projects, including atelier ten's forthcoming collaboration on the Google London King's Cross project with BIG and Heatherwick Studio, as the bookend to what he called "integral conversations."
