ThePARKROYAL on Pickering, Singapore, designed by Woha Architects Studio is the winner of the CTBUH Urban Habitat Award 2015. The building was completed in 2013 and in the same year was nominated amongst the finalists of the Best Tall Building Asia & Australasia, a title later won by the skyscraperCCTV Headquarters in Beijing, China, designed by Rem Koolhaas (OMA).
The skyscraper designed byWoha was praised by the jury of theUrban Habitat Award 2015 for the management of its public spaces on several levels, with the creation of gardens and green areas along the vertical development of the building. It is a demonstration of how, in the heart of an extremely built-up city like Singapore, one can increase greenery vertically and can manage it in a sustainable way, improving the quality of the city and the life of the inhabitants.
