Kallang River Bishan Park winner of World Architecture Festival landscape prize
Kallang River Bishan Park by Atelier Dreiseitl won the landscape prize as the judges deemed “This remarkable project fundamentally transforming the urban landscape of Singapore by rethinking the fundamentals of 1960s thinking, transforming a drainage canal into an eco- and people-friendly urban space.”
Gardens by the Bay winning World Building of the Year with the award officially going to Wilkinson Eyre Architects for the design of the Cooled Conservatories. However, Paul Finch, Festival Director stressed at the awards ceremony that this was a magnificent team effort and that the whole team should be recognised – in addition to the architect, the landscape architect Grant Associates and engineers Atelier One and Atelier Ten. Congratulations to Atelier Dreiseitl and all of the Gardens By the Bay team.
We have featured both projects in the past and you can revisit Kallang River Bishan Park by Atelier Dreiseitl and Gardens by the Bay.
We reported on Singapore’s plan for Bishan Park back in late 2009 (‘Kallang River to reappear in Bishan Park‘) and the plan has now come to fruition with Singapore’s Prime Minister recently opening the park to the public. The design was undertaken by Atelier Dreiseitl
Mr Herbert Dreiseitl, Founder and Partner from Atelier Dreiseitl stated back in 2009.
“As a strong new impulse for the future, an infrastructure that can be appreciated and accessed by citizens which at the same time respects the environment in a sustainable manner also brings about a subtle change in behaviour and thinking and it is through this change that we can begin to create places which are vibrant, healthy and full of socio-cultural liveliness. Bishan Park has already the beginnings of this, and bringing the river and water element back to the people, will further enhance the place.”
