In Their Own Words:
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat was founded by Lynn S. Beedle in 1969 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Prior to 1976, the CTBUH was known as the 'Joint Committee on Tall Buildings,' a joint group originally formed by the International Association of Bridge and Structural Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1969.

In 2003 the Council moved from Pennsylvania to the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, USA. The next 13 years saw tremendous growth for the Council, with a Research & Academic office opening at the Iuav University of Venice, Italy in 2014 and an Asia Headquarters office opening at Tongji University, Shanghai in 2015.

Having outgrown the space available at its IIT headquarters, in 2016 the Council expanded into the historic Monroe Building in downtown Chicago and established a Research & Academic office in the space remaining at IIT campus.
