The Japanese government has awarded British architect Tom Heneghan, current chair of architecture at the University of Sydney, its highest award for public architecture - the Kokyo Kenchiku Shoh - for this design of Forest Park Adatara. The scheme - commissioned by the governor of Fukushima - is a 'vacation village' for more than 1,000 people, set in the foothills of Mount Adatara. It aims to attract the residents of the region's major cities into the surrounding countryside.The Public Architecture Award is handed out annually.
