With all high rises starting to look alike, some architects are trying out new design forms like twists and circles. A new form that’s gaining popularity right now is the irregularly stacked box design. The stacked architecture recently got a nod of approval during the World Architecture Festival 2015, when a new housing project in Singapore called “The Interlace” was awarded the coveted World Building of the Year award. Designed by German architect Ole Scheeren, “The Interlace” consist of a group of six-storied apartment blocks that are stacked diagonally across one another to create a myriad of shared and private outdoor spaces on multiple levels.

The concept behind “The Interlace”, the architect says, was to find a way of creating high-density housing without adding another tower block to Singapore's skyline. Scheeren’s design was also lauded by the World Architecture Festival director Paul Finch who called it “an example of bold, contemporary architectural thinking.”
