Issue 77: OUTSTANDING LAND MARKS! The Taiyuan Museum of Art is defined by a curving, horizontal mass whose surfaces rise, fall and torque in response to the topography. The Heydar Aliyev Center establishes a continuous, fluid relationship between its surrounding plaza and the building’s interior, blurring conventional differentiation between architectural object and urban landscape, building envelope and urban plaza, figure and ground, interior and exterior. The exterior concrete structure of the Akiha Ward Cultural Center gently curves into a rising spiral, resembling terraced landscapes..

Issue 76: ip:li architects' award-winning project Killiney 118 challenged the design team to create a minimal core of maximum efficiency; ‘dancing stairs’ in a house on Stone Avenue by Makk Architects become a dynamic, experiential element in the space; the raw aesthetics of Seshan Design’s Menerung House in Bangsar, KL, comfortably meets expectations of the client who was involved in the construction process as well; ArchiCentre’s three-storey house in Sunway Damansara, PJ, is a sustainable green home with generous open living spaces and customised private rooms.

Issue 72: Buildings of eco-conscious architecture: The naturally cooled Star Vista retail mall and 5,000-seater Star Performing Arts Centre by AEDAS; NUS UTown's Education Resource Centre (ERC) by W Architects Pte Ltd. Also, Chang Architects' transforms Joo Chiat Place shophouse into a spectacular loft space that telescopes out to a deep rear extension; RT+Q's Sentosa Cove house is a subtle counterpoint to the symphony of avant-garde forms in the neighbourhood; Lato Design uses a 'timber ribbon' to reinforce the idea of house as a whole instead of different areas and rooms..
