World Building of the Year 2017 shortlist announced
The Smile has been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s World Architecture Festival, in addition to the overall prize.
The structure features in the Small Projects and Display categories. Winners will be announced during the festival, which takes place at Arena Berlin from 15-17 November 2017.
Alison Brooks will also be speaking with Jacob Kurek of Henning Larsen Architects on performance spaces. She will discuss performance embedded in the nature of housing and the many roles it plays: as urban form; as a backdrop for public streetscapes; as a sign of neighbourhood identity and a stage for domestic life.
