Receiving the top award that can be bestowed on a building - the world's building of the year award - is the Interlace. The Interlace was created by international architecture practice OMA, with architect Ole Scheeren heading up the Singapore-based project.

Stunning to look at, the building's interlaced design also provides a plethora of green space that support the apartments within, including completing a green belt running through Kent Ridge, Telok Blangah Hill and Mount Faber Parks in Singapore.

The apartments cover 8 ha and features 31 blocks stacked up, each six stories high. With the apartment blocks assembled at almost perpendicular angles, the resulting design is one you simply can't take your eyes off.

Due to the unique set-up where 1,040 apartments cover 1.8m sq ft, the landscape architecture is able to completely open up the outdoor space for residents.
