Executive Director and Studio Associate Professor at College of Architecture Antony Wood has been named among ENR’s Top 25 Newsmakers of 2016. ENR Newsmakers are those that have gone above and beyond to serve the best interests of the construction industry and the public. Wood is recognized for his role in “propelling the global skyscraper authority into a new era.”
In his “dream job,” Wood has initiated an original-research program, expanded publications, and made the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) website an interactive treasure trove of data that is free to everyone. “Antony has worked tirelessly to advance the exchange of information about tall buildings,” said CTBUH Trustee Abrar Sheriff, president and CEO, Turner International. “He has been a driving force to increase the collaborative spirit of our [entire] industry.”
From among the 25 Top Newsmakers, ENR editors will choose one individual to receive the publication’s highest honor–the Award of Excellence. That person will be the subject of a cover story in the April 17-24 issue. All will be celebrated Thursday, April 13 at the New York Hilton Midtown.
