William Pedersen to be recognised with CTBUH Lifetime Achievement Award

William Pedersen, founding partner of international architecture firm, Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), has been selected as the 2010 recipient of the Lynn S. Beedle Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). Mr. Pedersen will be honored at the 9th Annual Awards Dinner & Ceremony for his lifetime of dedication to the advancement of tall buildings with his work including the design of many influential and iconic skyscrapers across the globe.

The CTBUH 9th Annual Awards Dinner & Ceremony will take place on Thursday October 21st at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Crown Hall in Chicago. Mr. Pedersen will be honored alongside Ysrael A. Seinuk, who is to receive the Fazlur Khan Lifetime Achievement Medal.

“The tall building has been the dominant component of the modern city for almost 100 years,” said Mr. Pedersen. “By its nature, it tends to be insular and autonomous. My efforts during the past 35 years have been focused upon making it a more social participant within the city.”

Mr. Pedersen’s body of work includes many notable tall buildings such as: Canary Wharf FC-4 & FC-6 in London; Goldman Sachs European HQ in London; DG Bank Headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany; Forum Frankfurt Tour CBX in Paris, France; 333 Wacker Drive in Chicago, Illinois; 1250 Boulevard Rene-Levesque in Montreal, Canada; First Hawaiian Bank in Honolulu, Hawaii; Samsung Seocho and Posteel Tower, both in Seoul, South Korea; the International Commerce Centre in Hong Kong; and the Shanghai World Financial Center, which was named 'Best Tall Building Overall' by the CTBUH in 2008.
