Rhizome House, an installation and spatial prototype, was awarded the Design Award under the ‘Special Category – Overseas’. Initially created in response to the overarching theme of biomimicry for the Amsterdam Light Festival 2016-2017, the interactive light installation was praised by the jury for demonstrating a creative spirit and risk-taking boldness. Rhizome House was further complimented for its ability to engage the public, its experimental and explorative process and how it presents new possibilities of design and build of the future.

A collaborative project with Maki and Associates, the new MediaCorp Campus received the Honourable Mention under the ‘Special Category – Others’. Located strategically at the center of Mediapolis – the nation’s first media ecosystem, the new MediaCorp Campus is unmissable with its sharp planes and angular profiles creating a kinetic and highly sculptural silhouette. The design was commended on for navigating public and private space well, sitting harmoniously within the site, with clear and delightful spaces created through the inter-weaving of controlled work areas and public spaces.

Established in 1967, DP has evolved in tandem with Singapore’s nation building, becoming an important contributor to the country’s public projects and urban development. The firm’s work in Singapore has played a critical role in shaping the urban landscape: beginning with early projects like People’s Park Complex and Golden Mile Complex, early architectural anchors that helped introduce Singapore to new styles of modernist architecture; to some 20 projects on and around Orchard Road that redeveloped the retail corridor; to more recent projects like Esplanade and Singapore Sports Hub that have become integral components of the urban fabric.

Concéntrico installation design by DP Architects:

Concéntrico installation design by DP Architects

Jury’s Decision
This project was selected due to the dynamic and suggestive nature of the architecture it incorporates. It is resolved using pieces that, through the exercise of repetition on different scales, inhabit and filter the space, generating new paths and provoking a unique relationship between the pedestrian and the square, making them a participant.

Concéntrico installation design by DP Architects

Every installation is created by teams of architects and designers who propose, experiment with and explore new fields of design in the environment. In this way, the Festival offers them the chance to create architectural interventions in the heart of the city, establishing a dialogue between heritage and contemporary architecture, facilitating citizens’ reflection on those spaces.
