Emporis Skyscraper Award 2006

Hearst Tower wins Emporis Award

The seventh annual Emporis Skyscraper Award goes to Hearst Tower, New York City's first officially certified "green" office building, whose environmentally friendly innovations and intelligent design set a high standard for skyscrapers of the 21st century. The 42-story building was built using a "diagrid" frame in which vertical steel beams are replaced by interlocking diagonals that use about 20%% less steel.
The award was presented in December 2007 in New York City. The Emporis Skyscraper award is presented every year to a building over 100 meters tall which was completed in the previous year. The winner is selected on the basis of its architectural and functional distinction.
The second and third place winners are The Wave in Gold Coast City, Australia, and Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Australia.
