World Architecture News: Overall Winner

Sabah Al-Salem University College of Education

Sabah Al-Salem University College of Education won the World Architecture News Overall Winner (unbuilt category) award. Jurors were impressed with the urban scale, grandeur and conceptual thoroughness of our design: "the circulation forms almost like a fault line through the building, so it's like a horizontal strata that gradually meanders through the different floor plates." Juror Karim Benkirane detailed his thoughts: "The concept is powerful. I am seduced by it. It's presented so beautifully and the detailing is gorgeous. Its response to the local vernacular is tasteful and the response to its urban environment is amazing. That's the one for me that stands right out from anything else. It's amazing how close to the front it gets you just with getting the presentation right."
