AR Awards - Emerging Architecture

The Architecture Review has announced the 2007 winners of the AR Emerging Architecture prize. The winners include the Wall House in Chile by architects by FAR, the Eco Boulevard in Spain by Ecosistema Urbano Arquitectos and a Vegetation installation in Japan by Taketo Shimohigoshi

Olympic structures were also awarded, the water cube by PTW/Chris Bosse.
The real winner though was green, as a number of projects had an eco sensibility to them, like this one - made with renewable resources.
