AIA Europe Tours Newly Named 'Best Tall Building of Europe': White Walls in Nicosia, Cyprus

A key site visit at the latest AIA Europe Conference Girne/ Kyrenia: Communicating Across Cultures was recently named Best Tall Building of Europe by The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).  White Walls, by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, was awarded the prize at the CTBUH Awards Symposium and Dinner on November 3, 2016 in Chicago.  Day three of the AIA Europe International Conference took attendees to the Cyprus capital of Nicosia, where Nice Day Developments LTD (building owner and developer), Takis Sophocleous Architects (Architect of Record), and E&Y (primary tenant) presented a private tour of White Walls' offices and apartments.  Architect Demetris Sophocleous gave an informative lecture about the building's construction and performance. Click here for building photos and feature in Architect Magazine.
