Field Architecture receives Progressive Architecture Award for Karoo Wilderness Centre
At an Awards Ceremony at MOMA in New York, Field Architecture’s Karoo Wilderness Center, in South Africa, received the prestigious P/A award.
“It’s nice to see a project that is not intimidated by the sustainability question, but that engages it to make something very beautiful.” said Dan Rockhill, of the five jurors. A sentiment with which all the jurors strongly concurred.
“The beauty of the project lies not only in its simple forms and powerful evocation of the landscape, but also in the idea of the center itself … the center enables representatives of the academic and business world [to] directly engage in the resources they depend upon and promote … Conservation and use are demonstrated as equivalent functions … through which less is lost and more is gained.”
