Belgium, Brussels | Acknowledgement prize, Europe, 2014

Material Flows
Material Flows

This construction materials village is an illustration of sustainable urban logistics as part of a larger ecosystem. By distributing construction materials to Brussels and collecting construction waste from it, the village functions as an important logistics and distribution hub between port and city. The modular and hierarchical structure of the warehouses makes the architecture receptive to different programmatic demands of various site users.

Ethiopia, Addis Ababa | Acknowledgement prize, Middle East Africa, 2014

Weaving Publicness
Weaving Publicness

The winning entry of the architectural design competition for the headquarters of the Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce & Sectoral Associations (AACCSA) in Ethiopia aims to contribute to the spatial improvement of the urban environment, and to create an architectural dialog engaged in a global context with a strong local identity. It does so by integrating public spaces at ground level, continuing the “busy-ness” of the street within the building. A façade made of “woven” locally-quarried trachyte stone – reminiscent of Ethiopian stone architecture and ancient textile techniques – regulates ventilation as well as sunlight.

Sri Lanka, Ambepussa | Building Better Recognition, Asia Pacific, 2017 | Silver, Global, 2015

Post-War Collective in Sri Lanka
Post-War Collective in Sri Lanka

Following over 25 years of civil war, the reintegration of young soldiers is one of the great challenges Sri Lanka faces. This Community Library provided young men from underprivileged backgrounds with construction training during the implementation of the building. The slender building with a footprint of 1,400 sq m sits lightly in the landscape and wraps around an inner courtyard, taking full advantage of cross ventilation and daylighting. Rammed-earth walls and recycled materials reduce costs and the ecological footprint.
