The 2014 World Architecture Festival (WAF) has culminated with A21 Studio's/The Chapel of Vietnamese architect Nguyen Hoa Hiep named building of the year.
The Chapel was also winner of the Small Project of the Year, Landscape of the Year and Future Project of the Year awards on October 3.
The Chapel is a community space in a new urban ward on the outskirt of Ho Chi Minh City. As the result of estate crisis, the surrounding area is lacking of communal centres, therefore, the Chapel is designed to be the place for people to participate in activities such as conferences, weddings and exhibitions.
This year's festival, which took place in Singapore from October 1-3, attracted 200 projects from 50 countries around the globe competing at 20 main categories. Many of the world's leading architectural firms, such as ZahaHaid Architects, OMA, Foster + Partners, BIG, Woods Bagot, KPF and Farrells, attended the event.
