Architects Elevate the Club Sandwich

Food is so important to us that Architects have modelled their creations on it. This year the World Building of the Year is based on a Club Sandwich as seen in today's Hero Image. Below are two more views of the winning building.

The top prize at the 2018 World Architecture Festival Awards, for the World Building of the Year, has gone to Australian-Singaporean practice Woha for Kampung Admiralty, a “substantial” mixed-use building in Singapore that brings together a mix of public facilities and services under one roof. Beating out 535 projects from 57 countries, Kampung Admiralty is a project of Singapore’s Housing and Development Board. It is the first public project in Singapore to bring together childcare and senior centres in one integrated development, with the aim of encouraging inter-generational bonding. The complex is designed with a layered “club sandwich approach” and also includes commercial and residential spaces. To read more follow the link.
