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.

SAHMRI

Last year I spent some time - not enough time - with the stunning South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) building in Adelaide, by Woods Bagot. What can I say, it reminds me of my beloved Esplanade Theatres in Singapore with it’s graceful curves and striking geometric facade. How could I not love it? I plan to return later this year to spend some on the inside but in the meantime, here’s what I saw.

No brief, no intent, just seeing.

I love being behind my camera. It doesn't matter if I'm shooting for clients or for art - I love it. There is something special, however, about shooting for myself. No brief, no intent, just seeing. I like to do this between things to let of steam, if you like. I guess it is in lieu of international travel - this year anyway!

Khun by Yoo

During last year's trip to Thailand, I stayed in an up and coming area of Bangkok, Thonglor. It's a trendy little spot with great restaurants, cafes and shops. On one of my walks I stumbled across this sales office, yes, just a sales office. The Khun by Yoo sales office, along with the condos that will eventually stand there, were designed by Yoo in collaboration with Phillippe Starck. I see an elephant...

Bangkok. Finally.

I finally got around to sorting through my photos from last year's trip to Thailand. I've been to Bangkok a number of times over the past 10 years and there are a few things that I always notice. The first of those 'things' is colour. The unashamed, in your face, bright as can be, use of colour. T-shirts, taxis, umbrellas, buildings the list goes on. The Thai love colour. So do I.
