The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is the world’s leading resource for professionals focused on the inception, design, construction, and operation of tall buildings and future cities. Founded in 1969 and headquartered at Chicago’s historic Monroe Building, the CTBUH is a not-for-profit organization with an Asia Headquarters office at Tongji University, Shanghai, a Research Office at Iuav University, Venice, Italy; and an Academic Office at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. CTBUH facilitates the exchange of the latest knowledge available on tall buildings around the world through publications, research, events, working groups, web resources, and its extensive network of international representatives. The Council’s research department is spearheading the investigation of the next generation of tall buildings by aiding original research on sustainability and key development issues. The Council's free database on tall buildings, The Skyscraper Center, is updated daily with detailed information, images, data, and news. The CTBUH also developed the international standards for measuring tall building height and is recognized as the arbiter for bestowing such designations as “The World’s Tallest Building.”
"AAP – The American Architecture Prize™ is set to become one of the most respected awards in the industry and aims to showcase the phenomenal talent and vision displayed by architects all over the world.
We aim to recognize individuals and teams who have made a substantial contribution to all areas of architecture. We celebrate those who push boundaries and set new standards. Buildings clearly need to be practical and serve a purpose, but the AAP recognizes that excellence in architecture goes far beyond that.
We believe great architecture is about creating a lasting design that will remain for generations while inspiring people and enriching their lives. Innovative buildings, designs and landscapes can help redesign the way we live our lives for the better and enable us to make the most of the space we have"
The Winners Gala Event will take place in New Museum Sky Room on October 27, 2017, which is presented in association with "Archtober: Architecture and Design Month in New York City" happening throughout October 2017 in New York, NY, USA
For a yearly conference by the American Society of Civil Engineers, which in 2017 is themed as "Congress on Technical Advancement" - and brings together leaders from the Aerospace Division, the Committee on Adaptation to a Changing Climate, the Cold Regions Engineering Division, the Construction Institute, the Energy Division, the Forensic Engineering Division, and the Infrastructure Resilience Division - RB Systems has prepared a white paper which was approved for inclusion in the conference proceedings and presentations in Duluth, MN, on September 10-13, 2017.
RB Systems also endorses ASCE's campaign for the "Dream Big" movie - a remarkable insight into the nature of mankind's creativity - which includes stories on the future of transportation and the Hyperloop being amongst them. More at http://www.dreambigfilm.com/education/

In a coveted acclaim for the approach we take at RB Systems which is to transition architecture from a field of art into the field of design engineering, the outlet such as Popular Mechanics - which is usually not associated with architectural publications - has featured the project in its January 2017 issue.
A.T. Kearney, a leading management consulting firm advising senior executives globally on business issues, came up with the initiative targeting Real Estate developers in GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) in light of an approaching crisis, which caught "real-estate development swinging from iconic architectural feats to the cancellation of two-thirds of the value in a project’s pipeline". The goal of the paper is to find opportunities for new investments to still look viable:
" If you build the same thing in the same way, you will always end up in the same place. But the GCC’s real estate industry cannot be satisfied with merely achieving the status quo <...> To get a sense of how the industry can break the mold, look at automotive, where game-changing, disruptive innovations are coming from improbable places like Google and Tesla <...> How can the real estate industry tap into this kind of mindset? <...> For this report, we tested this idea by connecting real estate development with research done in—literally—a totally different world: supporting human life on Mars. We interviewed 11 finalist teams competing in NASA’s 2015 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge and asked them how their research could apply on Earth. The responses were surprising—including ideas regarding water conservation, material consumption, and the use of technology that could prove applicable here as well as on Mars "

Design Weekend hosted by Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, was structured as a student-focused design competition and as a non-student team, RB Systems was not eligible to win awards or sponsorships, however, was invited to show off its design to the public. The event welcomed some of the best and brightest students from around the world, prominent companies and sponsors, leading engineers of SpaceX as judges, and was complemented by keynotes from a former astronaut Dr. Gregory Chamitoff, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, and cameo appearance of Elon Musk.
