Jury-rating (extract): »The jury was taken by the very successful sculptural surface treatment created to clad a conventional, flexible box while likewise fulfilling clear functions. The Aqua Tower features superlative balconies and the views afforded by floor-to-ceiling glazing that double up as solar shading. It creates a very strong identity despite not being exceptionally high.«
