• Woods Bagot wins at the 2011 MAKE Awards

    23 November 2011

    Woods Bagot has been announced as a winner at the 2011 Asian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) Awards and was the only architectural practice to make the short list this year.

    As a winner of an Asian MAKE Award, Woods Bagot has now been shortlisted for the Global MAKE Awards, to be announced later this year.

    The company says it is committed to a new kind of architectural engagement and is working towards a new level of united authorship through their global studio. The global studio commits two percent of its business revenue to research and knowledge management; creating initiatives and tools such as the global research brand Public, and the Design Intelligence Portal, an online tool that aims to capture and share design intelligence across the globe.

    The company cites various award winning projects as a product of its research and knowledge-sharing capabilities, including the Shijiazhuang International Exhibition and Convention Centre, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, as well as the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute featured here.


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
