The next example comes from Central Europe. It’s the Philharmonic Orchestra of Szczecin (Polish: Szczecin) in Poland. Here too, as with the other nominees, successful referring to the architecture in the area seems to have played an important role. There are many ornate Neo-Gothic elements.

Saw Swee Hock Student Center by O’Donnell + Tuomey to the London School of Economics is the fifth object, which has made it to the nomination. The architecture must represent the verse Inn image clearing of the desire to turn this place into a centre of scientific exchange. The movement is visually welded to a unit inside and outside. This works also thanks to the fork-shaped structure of the tile arrangement. So you can get more light. Also, there is the fascinating growing effect on the building at night.
