These winning projects—comprising tall buildings, urban developments, and technical innovations—competed for winning distinctions at the 2021 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference from 18 to 20 May, which took place virtually.

Competing against 160 other world-class finalists, Lakhta Center received the "Best in Façade Engineering” Award at the event. Lakhta Center was also awarded with a special audience prize and trophy as the "Best Tall Building in Europe", "Best Tall Building 400+ Meters", and Construction Award. CTBUH is the world’s leading resource on tall buildings for architects, engineers and builders of skyscrapers.

Tony Kettle RIBA RIAS, co-author of the original architectural consept of Lakhta Center during his tenure at RMJM, said  "Lakhta Centre is a truly unique tower, designed and constructed in the most challenging of environments. It is a building which celebrates energy in all of its forms, through the movement evoked in its beautiful organic facade, its innovative low energy design where 5 towers combine as one, and as an elegant spire and city landmark for Gazprom's investment into St Petersburg.  It is a worthy winner of a CTBUH award!"
