The "Interlace" building in Singapore, named World Building of the Year 2015, bears many similarities with "Habitat 67" by Moshe Safdie

In contrast to the isolated vertical skyscrapers that are found traditionally in megacities, the "Interlace" cluster by Dutch firm OMA and architect Buro Ole Scheeren in Singapore combines horizontal surfaces, clustered blocks and cascading tropical gardens.
The "village" was awarded "World Building of The Year 2015" for completed projects at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore (4-6 November), the world's largest architectural event.
The design evokes memories of a famous architectural design from almost 50 years ago: Habitat '67 by Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, which used prefabricated concrete blocks to form irregular clusters with gardens.
Habitat was built as a pavilon for the 1967 World Expo in Montreal. Its underlying idea was to prove that a combination of dense, low-cost social housing with the amenities of suburban living, such as green spaces and close communal relations, was possible.
Reflecting modern-day priorities, "Interlace" is intended to maximise shading, reducing heat gain and ultimately, enable the building to self-regulate its temperature.
