AR announces winner of global Emerging Architecture Award

  • Comment

The Architectural Review’s (AR) Emerging Architecture Award has been handed to Supermachine Studio’s ‘whimsical, fun and radical’ vertical playground in Thailand

The three-dimensional concrete maze, known as 10 Cal Tower, was designed by the up-and-coming Bangkok-based studio to bring together children and adults.

Located on the Bangsaen Beach, 100km south of Bangkok, the red concrete staircase tower reimagines the traditional playground and creates a meeting place.

The practice was handed the £10,000 prize at an event at the Barbican Centre in London last night (24 November).

Japan-based Hiroshi Nakamura and NAP picked up two ‘highly commended’ awards for its forest chapel and bird’s nest treehouse.

Marcosandmarjan architects (MAM) was the only UK-based practice to win an award. It received a commendation for its Cor-ten installation on Euston Square Gardens entitled Alga(e)zebo.

The awards were judged by architects David Adjaye, Peter Cook and Odile Decq.
