WAFChina 2021 Winners

 

COMPLETED BUILDING OF THE YEAR WINNER
年度最佳建成项目

Lacime Architects, Pingjiang Branch of Suzhou Library

This design revisits the traditional notion of a library as a repository for, and a place to enjoy, books. Externally, the block interface contributes to a streetscape open to multiple social activities. The courtyard morphology is carefully considered and shows how it can provide variety both of scale and function. With enticing interior spaces, formed by skilful deployment of the basic elements of roof, floors, walls and staircase, the library exudes respect for its contents and its readers – which should foster beneficial relationships between them. Crisp detailing helps turn a prosaic experience into something special.

 

FUTURE PROJECT OF THE YEAR WINNER
 年度最佳未建成项目

Taikang Healthcare & Li Xiaodong Atelier, Tianmen Primary School

The architecture for this primary school, for 1,080 pupils, offers a new vision for early years education in China. Using various design devices, it overcomes the need for excessive security and engages its occupants with nature – achieving the first by skilful manipulation of the section and the second by lavish planting, which includes a small rooftop ‘farm’. Overall it creates an ambience conducive to learning within a dense city centre site, managing to achieve this by means of horizontal rather than vertical architecture.

LANDSCAPE OF THE YEAR WINNER
年度最佳景观设计项目

Sichuan Provincial Architectural Design & Research Institute, Qinglong Lake Park

This landscape design addresses what can be the devastated edges of urban settlements, by providing a form of wild ‘lung’, premiating nature and wildlife rather than people. This welcome development is a good example of long-term phasing; the strategy creates an exemplar which could be adopted in many cities, particularly across Asia.

INTERIOR DESIGN OF THE YEAR WINNER
年度最佳室内设计项目

NONG STUDIO, The Exchange Bar, Shanghai Blackstone Apartment

A clever narrative that evokes the 1924 heritage of the building that houses it. A beautifully crafted well, detailed and thoughtful interior. It is definitely a bar that we all agreed we would like to go to.
