Lucid Stead by Phillip K Smith III, Joshua Tree, California
Commended: Aloft, London, UK
Complex site restrictions made designing a facilities-packed hotel for London's largest exhibition centre - ExCel - a rather tricky task. A serpentine layout slithered around the obstacles gives hotel guests easy access via two concourses; plus there are water features, a sculptural oak-clad spiral and life-giving natural daylight.
