The World Architecture Festival has just finished - here are our favourites from the shortlist
The World Architectural Festival has just finished in Singapore, during which a shortlist of over 300 projects in 33 categories were judged for the grand prize. We're suckers for an amazing building, and some of these beauties are like a great fireworks display - you can only ooh and aah. SoundForms, pictured, is actually a shell intended to host open-air performances - it's meant to enhance the sound of classical and orchestral music, and is set in Docklands, London, U.K.
Among our favourites are an Iranian ski resort that resembles a pure white honeycomb, a round green dome that looks as if it is about to fly back to the mother ship and a house shaped like a cloud. Tell us which is your personal winner!
