HONOURABLE MENTION (Institutional Project)
The museum makes a striking landmark with its sculptural form and its evocative textures. The judges acknowledged the architect's effort to account for the neighbouring two buildings and bring them into a dialogue.
The choice of placing the object on a prominent plinth does create the expectation that the main entrance be on that plinth level, rather than one level below. The iconic form is memorable, even if it could contribute more actively to the character of the internal spaces.
