The architects rose to the challenge with remarkable creativity. 2 separate blocks arranged perpendicular to one another form a deceptively simple parti. As the forms rise and engage the verticality of the site, they also undergo localised architectural operations such as cuts, pop-outs, bridges and cantilevered platforms.
The materials were well-handled and the detailing sophisticated.
Overall, the jury commented that despite complexities, the carefully considered design moves created stunning surprises and were delightful.
