South Africa’s Top Buildings at Architecture Awards
Every two years, the Corobrik-SAIA Award for Excellence recognises exceptional contributions to the field of architecture.
The institute this year bestowed eight awards of excellence, 14 merit awards and two special commendations on projects ranging from residential units and public buildings to the restoration of heritage sites and even an academic research project.
“This year’s winners talked not only to materiality, programmatic requirements, the employment of resources and the application of socio-cultural debates,” says SAIA president Sindile Ngonyama. “They also engaged and articulated the day-to-day intellectual and topical discourse of our ever-changing biophysical environment.”
