With a total construction area of 11,659.5 square meters, it includes a natatorium, badminton courts, lecture and multi-functional halls, gymnasium, conference halls, a community school, and more. The center is also designed for maximum sustainability and to operate as a net-zero building, obtaining both LEED Platinum and China’s Three Star certifications.

WHIZDOM 101 Bangkok

Third place: Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited

Smart cities don’t have to start from scratch—they can be built within metropolitan cities right now.

Take WHIZDOM 101 in Bangkok as a prime example. Its mission is to transform an urban, 17-acre plot into a smart city model with a fully integrated, digital, mixed-use development with both commercial space and residential towers. By minimizing environmental impacts, saving energy, and reducing carbon emissions, the $1 billion project with a gross floor area of 3,842,716 square feet is designed not only to improve quality of life, but also boost sustainable development for the community.
