Highly commended

Felipe Assadi

Fruit warehouse

Calera de Tango, Chile

December 2002
The fruit storage device made by Felipe Assadi, near Santiago in Chile is a cross between an enormous piece of furniture and a transport container. The jury was impressed by the way in which a very ordinary programme had been transmuted into making architecture with economy and elegance. Good design must be as concerned with improving the everyday as with creation of monuments.
