Battery Park awarded Finalist position in international Architizer Awards
Battery Park, a 12 000m² urban park at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town designed by dhk, has been awarded a Finalist position in the Architizer Awards’ Concepts – Plus-Architecture +Urban Transformation category.
The project forms part of the Canal District and facilitates the reconnection of the historical city centre and De Waterkant to the V&A. The aim was to create a publicly accessible park which lies at the nexus of a multitude of new pedestrian routes stitching the new district into the surrounding urban fabric and thereby helping to invigorate the area.
In addition to this, dhk’s design for Sable Park was given a Special Mention in the Details – Plus-Architecture +Cantilever category .
The Architizer A+Awards is the largest awards program focused on promoting and celebrating the year’s best architecture and products. Its mission is to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion those products that are integral to bringing great buildings to life.
