Two bits of great news yesterday.
1. The Mapungubwe Interpretation Centre by Peter Rich Architects which we visited as part of Global Studio earlier this year has been awarded The World Building of the Year Award at The World Architecture Festival in Barcelona. Dezeen Magazine has more here.
2. Yesterday the founder and conveyor of Global Studio Anna Rubbo was awarded the prestigious Skandalaris award at this week’s NCSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture) and NCAA (National Council of Art Administrators) Conference in St Louis . Global Studio is recognised for its programs and work in Istanbul, Vancouver and Johannesburg. The award is to “support new or on-going projects ands/or creative research”. Horrah! I say.
