WOHA’s Kampung Admiralty Singapore in Singapore has been named the 2018 World Building of the Year at the World Architecture Festival, concluding this year’s three-day event in Amsterdam. The building, which combines dedicated senior-housing facilities with a broad mixed-use program and a lush green roof, was selected from a strikingly broad shortlist that included works from offices such as Sanjay Puri Architects, Koffi & Diabate Architectes, Heatherwick Studio, Spheron Architects, and INNOCAD.

The World Architecture Festival invites shortlisted architects from around the world to present their projects in a range of categories, the winners of which are invited to present in front of a Super Jury for final selection. 

Also announced was the 2018 Future Project of the Year, an award that recognises exceptional potential in an as-yet unbuilt project. This year’s honoree was the Medellin River Parks / Botanical Master Plan by Colombian Architects Sebastian Monsalve + Juan David Hoyos. The project, which will introduce new public green space to the heart of the Medellin, is an integral part of the ongoing urban renaissance in the Colombian city.
