The Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) have named five finalists for the International Highrise Award (IHP) 2020. Selected from 31 nominated highrises in 14 countries, the projects include towers by Zaha Hadid Architects, BIG, SOM, OMA and Heatherwick Studio. The IHA is considered the world's most important architecture award for high-rise buildings. The International Highrise Award is aimed at architects and developers whose buildings are at least 100 meters high and have been completed in the past two years. As in previous years, China is the country with the most high-rise projects, with roughly every third sky-rise with a height of at least 100 meters being built there. This year, the Casablanca Finance City Tower in Morocco is the first high-rise building on the African continent to be nominated for the award.
