The RAIC Governor General's Medals in
Architecture recognise outstanding achievement in
recently built projects by Canadian architects. This
charming family abode was a 2008 medal winner.
PROJECT House at 4a Wychwood Park
ARCHITECT Ian MacDonald Architect
This dwelling involved the replacement of a derelict
1950s bungalow, which sat awkwardly on a sloped
site. Built within the limits of a prescribed building
envelope, the design respects the arts-and-crafts
character of the neighbourhood
within a modernist idiom.

The World Architecture Festival acknowledges the
very best in building and design from across the
world. The Final Wooden House by Sou Fujimoto
Architects won the 2008 Private House award.
PROJECT Final Wooden House, Japan
ARCHITECT Sou Fujimoto Architects
The intense design concept of this house belies its
functionality. Using monumental blocks of timber,
Fujimoto has "stacked up" the walls, floors and roof,
creating a series of interlocking, multi-level living
spaces. The puzzle-like interior features 45-degree
angled windows that bring the outside in.
