WOHA's Kampung Admiralty - 2018 Building of the Year

I was fortunate to take a quick trip to Singapore earlier this year and more fortunate still to sneak away for a few hours to shoot WOHA Architect’s Kampung Admiralty - named 2018 World Building of the Year at the World Architecture Festival. And rightly so. The building is mixed-use, combining social housing with commercial and retail spaces (food, medical etc) and includes a remarkable, terraced green roof. The stacked terraces include a kids playground, an outdoor gym, peaceful gathering places and a community farm, together providing a community park for residents and visitors. I barely scratched the surface in the few hours I spent there but impressed I was. Hot, but impressed.

Geelong Library

I haven't spent a great deal of time in Geelong but after a few visits recently, I'm on board. As manufacturing opportunities fade Geelong is making a push to become a place of arts and innovation. The impressive, award winning Geelong library by ARM Architecture, completed in 2015, is definitely a step in the right direction.
