105 Corlett Drive is a striking commercial building in the Johannesburg suburb of Birnam housing the innovative advertising agency The Creative Counsel. A two-storey office building sits above a three-storey car parking podium on three double-volume cones clad in lacquered steel “scales” from ArcelorMittal. These, together with high-specification glazing of the office space, comprise a dynamic architectural envelope that reflects the ever-changing sunlight, the sky and surrounding landscape, adding an element of high drama to an otherwise serious looking structure.

Bilbao Port Terminal
There are projects on which architects use prefabrication because they find the idea attractive, or in some way it suits their design. This was also true of the new Cruise Terminal in Bilbao, designed by architect baragaño, but it was also the only way in which it could satisfy the extremely tight programme. ‘We won the project in competition,’ explained Sergio Baragaño, ‘and it had to be completed six months’ later. The first cruise ship was due in six months.’
