Marina Bay Sands, Singapore by Safdie Architects

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Marina Bay Sands is a $5 billion, high-density, mixed-use integrated resort that brings together a 2,560-room hotel, convention center, shopping and dining, theaters, museum, and a casino across the water from Singapore’s Central Business District. Designed by Boston-based, internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie for the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, the 929,000 square meter (10 million square-foot) urban district anchors the Singapore waterfront, creates a gateway to Singapore, and provides a dynamic setting for a vibrant public life. Moshe Safdie was invited to join the Las Vegas Sands Corporation in developing a competitive design proposal for Marina Bay for submission to the Government of Singapore.

Batumi Aquarium in The Republic of Georgia by Henning Larsen

Henning Larsen Architects’ proposal for Batumi Aquarium is inspired by the characteristic pebbles of the Batumi beach – shaped by sea currents through millennia. The building stands out as an iconic rock formation visible from both land and sea. The formation constitutes four self-supporting exhibition areas with each stone representing a unique marine biotype – the Aegean Sea & the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea & the Red Sea and finally the more interactive exhibition space for teaching and “edutainment”.

Camberwell Junction in Victoria, Australia

Monday, January 17th, 2011
  • Architect: Wood/Marsh Pty Ltd Architecture
  • Project year: 2011

Designed as a sinuous sculpted structure, the building has been split into podium and apartment elements.  These elements physically describe the different uses within the development and employ changes in height and setbacks to alter the perception of the buildings size from different angles.  In perspective no entire elevation is viewed at once.  The buildings have no front, rear, or side, and present a consistent level of finish when viewed from any direction.
