Last February, the futuristic Kennedy Town Swimming Pool (KTSP) -located in an historic Hong Kong neighborhood- was completed. The new civil and recreation hub, built beside Victoria Harbour, now serves as an icon for the community, and has helped rejuvenate a neglected district of otherwise vibrant Kennedy Town. Designed by Farrells,KTSP has won a 2017 American Architecture Prize in the Recreational Architecture category.
The King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centre (KAPSARC), rising out of the desert landscape of Riyadh, is a non-profit institution for independent research into policies that contribute to the most effective use of energy to provide social wellbeing across the globe. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the futuristic building opened its doors last October for Saudi Design Week 2017.
