              Emporis Skyscraper Award 2007

              Het Strijkijzer wins Emporis Skyscraper Award

              The winner of the eighth annual Emporis Award for the Best New Skyscraper of the Year is a 42-story residential building called “Het Strijkijzer” in The Hague, Netherlands. The winning building was chosen from a worldwide pool of 634 eligible skyscrapers (buildings at least 100 meters tall) which were completed in 2007 or due for completion in 2007 at the time of nomination.
              The Silver Award for second place goes to Newton Suites in Singapore, a 36-story 120 meter (394 foot) residential tower with a strong emphasis on environmentally sustainable design. Among the building's many “green” features are overhanging meshes which shelter every window from the tropical sun, and yet are designed not to interfere with views. The tower features a “green roof”, and the side walls are also covered with foliage on the sections without windows. The sunshades and overhanging balconies give the fa?ade a rich texture and a clear visual rhythm. At every fourth level, a sheltered skygarden protrudes from the tower, allowing residents to congregate and wait for elevators on a pleasant, tree-shaded terrace. Newton Suites was designed by WOHA Architects Private Limited, and developed by UOL Group. Both firms are located in Singapore.
              The Bronze Award goes to Ontario Tower in London, a 106 meter (346 foot) residential tower on the north bank of the Thames in London, just east of Docklands. Ontario Tower is distinguished by an oval footprint and a roofline that slopes down towards the river. The design was inspired by the factory chimneys and ship smokestacks that symbolized the London of the Industrial Revolution and used to be seen all along this stretch of the Thames.
              Ontario Tower was designed by the London office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Inc., and developed by Ballymore Properties Ltd. of London.
