DinellJohansson’s architecture, Lingövallen, was awarded the Small Project Prize for a football club in a Stockholm suburb, while the Danish firm Big won a price for their twisted skyscraper, Vancouver House, in the category Future Project of the Year.
Vancouver house in Vancouver, Canada, is currently one of the world’s most talked about real estate projects, including both high and low-rise structures.
The facility Lidingövallen, designed by Dinell Johansson for Lidingö football club has a roof that doubles as spectator seating and provides a gallery, café and office. The architects felt they could accommodate all of these spaces beneath the seating bleachers.
