Inully was invited by the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) in April 2016 to participate as a guest critic in the jury for the final review of the Tropicologies at the Option Studio lead by Carlos Bañon this term at SUTD. During this session were exposed mixed-use high rise prototypes within the tropical regions. This project utilised essential principles in form, energy and thermal knowledge, and were based on a skilful management of elementary means. It was an honour and a pleasure for Javier de Santiago to be part of this jury with such a talented group of students and teachers.
Sky Spaces Exhibition
Inully is proud to announce that Javier de Santiago was invited to attend the Sky Spaces exhibition as a result of his runner-up award for the proposed Amethyst HK, an exhibition exploring the concept of humanising Hong Kong’s high-rises.
This year, the challenge was to adopt Singapore’s planning regulations that promote landscape replacement to create new models of green, high-rise, mixed-use buildings in Hong Kong. The competition is part of the 2nd Annual Peter McCaffery Fellowship, a hypothetical scenario organised by Benoy and hosted in memory of Benoy’s Global Director.
The exhibition of the competition work was opened to the public at the Fringe Club in Hong Kong on 15 and 16 June 2016 with great exposure by international media and local magazines.
