The Emporis Skyscraper Award 2013 goes to the Absolute World Towers in Mississauga, Ontario

The Emporis Skyscraper Award is the world’s most renowned architecture prize for skyscrapers [www.emporis.com].

As per canadianinteriors.com:

“The two towers were selected by an international jury of experts from over 300 skyscrapers at least 100 metres tall completed last year.”

“Absolute World Towers winning the Emporis Skyscraper Award means this now the second time the prize has gone to Canada. In 2001, Vancouver’s One Wall Centre claimed the coveted top spot. Surprisingly, the U.S.A. – the cradle of high-rise architecture – does not feature this year. Instead, major international cities such as Moscow, Istanbul or Guangzhou stake their claim to their own chapter in the history of outstanding skyscraper architecture with an impressive array of unique buildings.”
