Stacking Green in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, designed by Vo Trong Nghia Architects, has won the house category.
This tall thin house on a narrow plot is, said the judges, 'a holistic piece of architecture with great clarity of vision and strength and memorable iconography'. They added that it 'is a simple yet elegant solution to a common problem in developing cities and offers an easily repeatable typology. It deals elelgantly with issues of security, privacy, climate and light in a poetic yet economical way'.
