In Singapore ‘Vertical village’ wins award for world building of the year

Breaking away from the generic mold of "tower clusters" that is typical of housing in the region, the project is described as a radical approach to contemporary architectural thinking.

It might look like an imaginary far off land seen in a sci-fi film, but this ‘vertical village’ is entirely real, and it’s just been named the world building of the year.


The Interlace development is situated in Singapore and features 31 apartment blocks stacked at angles to each other and won in the housing category.

The impressive block features 1,040 homes across eight hectares and finished construction two years ago.

Other winners included the plans for a proposed redevelopment of a war-ravaged Russian city, alongside a house made near entirely from scrap metal.


And the transformation of London’s Olympic Stadium into a new home for West Ham was also rewarded with the ‘Future Leisure-Led Development of 2015.’

Judges hailed it as being ‘sustainable, efficient and respectful of London’s Olympic heritage.’
