The Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) celebrated two recipients of the SIA Gold Medal as well as 19 winners of the SIA Architectural Design Awards (ADA) during a gala dinner held in conjunction with the professional organisation’s 60-year milestone on 21 August 2023. The presentation ceremony saw the presence of Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and Second Minister for National Development as the guest of honour.

The Gold Medal was conferred on 84-year-old Ar Raymond Woo and the late Ar Kerry Hill (1943-2018) in recognition of their lifetime contributions to architecture and the profession.

Woo was among the few entrusted with nation-building projects during the formative years of the city, having won the design competitions for Jurong Town Hall and the Singapore Science Centre then. His insights have been instrumental in the shaping of the Subordinate Courts Complex; State Courts Complex; National Art Gallery; and the rejuvenation of the Golden Mile Complex.

The founder of Raymond Woo & Associates Architects constantly explores new concepts and materials, with a diverse portfolio—comprising 78 Shenton Way; Equity Plaza; Loyang Valley Condominium; Singapore Airlines Engineering Hangar; the conservation of Yueh Hai Ching temple; and 268 Orchard—under his belt. With a career spanning over five decades, his stylistic approaches reflect the socioeconomic conditions and aspirations of the state during different periods.

Following the establishment of Kerry Hill Architects in 1979, Hill created contextually sensitive works that drew on local styles, building techniques and materials. With a forte in designing hotels and resorts in Asia and beyond, his modern approach to tropical architecture introduced a distinctive design language, evident in Lalu Hotel at Sun Moon Lake in Nantou, Taiwan; The Chedi in Chiang Mai, Thailand; Amankora in Bhutan; Aman in Tokyo, Japan; Amanemu in Honshu, Japan; the State Buildings in Perth, Australia; The State Theatre Centre of Western Australia; and residential projects Genesis, Hana, Urban Suites and Martin No. 38 in Singapore. Hill’s legacy is being carried on by his thriving practice.
