The Doha Tower in Qatar has been named the "Best Tall Building Worldwide" by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The structure, built using reinforced concrete diagrid columns, is an "excellent example of an efficient modern tower that is inspired by its local culture and setting," said Antony Wood, CTBUH's executive director. "In an age of homogenized slick towers globally, Doha Tower is rooted to its place. This is not a non-specific icon which you could drop into any city of the world."
