Mixed-use, community and culture recognised at World Architecture Festival day two

The second day of the World Architecture Festival Awards (WAF) 2019 saw mixed-use, cultural and community projects celebrated across a number of categories.

The ‘Culture - Future Projects’ award was won by White Arkitekter for The New GoDown Arts Centre in Nairobi, Kenya, recognised for its clearly articulated "combination of social, traditional and environmental objectives" and a "good list of local materials and construction".

STUDIO V Architecture won in the ‘Experimental – Future Projects’ category with their The Tanks at Bushwick Inlet Park proposal – a 21st century public park in New York City that will pay homage to the community’s legacy of manufacturing.

The ‘Hotel and Leisure - Completed Buildings’ award went to Architecture Workshop for their Lindis Lodge project, a five-bedroom luxury lodge in the New Zealand Southern Alps that mixes "poetic" and "sensitively considered" design with sustainable features for water treatment, heating, cooling, ventilation and insulation.

Serie + Multiply Architects won the ‘Mixed Use – Completed Buildings’ award for their Oasis Terraces project, which provides public housing in Punggol, Singapore, as well as a carefully considered and adaptably integrated shopping centre, polyclinic and community amenities.

Studio Akkerhuis' De Meelfabriek development in Leiden, Netherlands, won the ‘Commercial Mixed Use – Future Projects’ category for the creation of a new vibrant urban fabric of living, working, recreational and retail facilities on a formerly neglected and inaccessible industrial brownfield site.

And, having taken home an award on day one of the festival, Heatherwick Studio won again – this time in the ‘Shopping - Completed Buildings’ category. Their addition of two bridges to link up London's Coal Drops Yard is credited with helping the development become "a landmark for King’s Cross while respecting the site’s heritage."

Yesterday's round-up article highlights winners from day one of the WAF, while the overall winners will be announced today.
