|Francine Houben of Mecanoo architects designed the Montevideo residential tower. She received two awards for it: the International Highrise Award 2006 and the International Dedalo Minosse Prize 2006. This residential tower is a kind of city with shops, stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues. The use of color masonry patterns in a skyscraper reminds me of the style of Mexican architect Legorreta. See, Plaza Juarez in Mexico City, for example. The variations in fenestration also add to the interest of the building. No International style unvaried box here.|
