    SINGAPORE'S DESIGN AWARD WINNERS

    Rosyth School, by PWD Consultants Pte. Ltd., was one of the top winners in the 6th Singapore Institute of Architects Architectural Design Awards. The project, in the assessment of the jury, successfully "integrates indoor and outdoor activities through sensitive planning and use of materials." The awards program is held once every three years, with the intent of recognizing the efforts of SIA member firms in creating innovative and exemplary architectural design. ArchitectureWeek will showcase this and other winners in areas of residential, commercial, and institutional buildings.

    FRENCH SITES OF ART AND ARCHITECTURE

    "Two exceedingly eccentric structures having the earmarks of cruise ships" is how art historian and travel writer Sidra Stich describes the Némausus public housing designed by Jean Nouvel in the city of Nîmes, France. "Materials, like all else in the project," she writes, "evolved from a refusal to accept the conventional restraints and inadequacies of public housing." In Art-Sites France, one in a series of Art-Sites travel books, Stich shows us the art and architecture of the places she visits in a way no conventional travel book does. Next week we'll look at a few notable buildings in Paris and the provinces.

The firm remains committed to projects that allow innovative thinking, focus on architecture as place, afford a mutually supportive and collaborative process, and are of value to society. Today this process is largely articulated through the computer-aided design system Autodesk Architectural Desktop. Elizabeth Bollinger will explain the fit between the firm and their chosen software.
