The International High-Rise Award is bestowed every two years for a high-rise that combines exemplary sustainability, outer shape, 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.

November 2022 sees the 10th jubilee edition of the International High-Rise Award.

Since 2004, the prize has been organized and awarded jointly by the City of Frankfurt, Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM), and DekaBank. Since the beginning of the millennium, it has kept pace with the ongoing boom worldwide in what is clearly the prime field of architecture in the 21st century.

The project that wins the International High-Rise Award is announced at the formal prize-giving ceremony in Frankfurt’s Paulskirche, followed by an exhibition at Deutsches Architekturmuseum (guesting in Museum Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt) and an extensive book publication.

Media partners of the International Highrise Award 2022/23 are ZDF aspekte and BauNetz.
