The 13,000-sqm-GFA hybrid building was constructed in only nine months by Kaufmann Bausysteme from Austria, using 371 wooden modules. Other winners announced yesterday evening in Cannes include ACM’s Paris “Laborde” in the Office Development category, the Hirakara T-Site (Japan) by  So-Two Inc. as Best Shopping Center, the Greenwich Peninsula Low Carbon Energy Centre in London (Pinnacle Power, Knight Dragon) and the Italian resort Club Med Cefalù.
