The overall winner in 2011 was an Italian project: the housing development in Milano-Fiori, Assago, by OBR with Buro Happold Ltd and Favero & Milan Ingegneria S.p.A. for the Cabassi Group.
The project was awarded the overall first prize and also won in the category "Residential Building of the Year Award - Multiple Occupancy".
The international panel of judges particularly appreciated the symbiosis between architecture and landscape revealed by the presence of bioclimatic greenhouses, a characteristic element of the project and of OBR's architecture in general.
Completed in 2010 after a long process of planning that began when the studio won a competition held in 2005, OBR's project may already be familiar to Floornature readers as it was presented in the itinerary "Architecture and sustainability: construction technologies presented by Alessandro Trivelli", put together as part of the Architectural Itineraries in Milan project of the P.P.C. Order of Architects of the Province of Milan.
