World-renowned for its ancient terracotta warriors’ museum, Xi’an has a spectacular new attraction that could well become another must-visit experience for visitors. The Aedas-designed Xi’an Lovi Center, a mixed-use development which opened in June, is a sight to behold.
BIG RESPONSE TO
A&D AWARDS 2023
A&D Awards 2023 is now closed for entries after a strong response from architecture and design practices across Asia Pacific and beyond.
Our international panel of expert judges, shown below, will undertake a rigorous two-tier assessment to determine the very best work over the past 18 months.
All this year’s winners will be announced at the highly anticipated 2023 A&D Awards Gala Dinner, scheduled for January 2024. Check out the video on the right to watch highlights of the fabulous 2022 Awards dinner.
Our thanks go to all practices who entered this year. Your support is vital to the success of the Awards which celebrate best practice in the A&D community.
And to all entrants, we wish you good luck!
Hong Kong and Seoul are both densely populated, global cities with rich cultural influences. Following the latest instalment of AIA Hong Kong’s instructive “Emerging Voices Series”, it’s clear they share something else in common: at least four emerging architecture firms with a passion for pushing the boundaries of conventional design and finding new ways of doing business.
Imagine being asked to connect two new underground rail lines to one of Hong Kong’s busiest MTR stations without disrupting existing services or the surrounding area. Sounds impossible? Not for global design and engineering company Arup which achieved all this and more at the expanded Admiralty station on Hong Kong island.
The thing that impressed me was the youthful spirit. Young designers, young practitioners. You could feel the spirit and quality of their work. That’s encouraging.
Congratulations to the A&D Awards for celebrating excellence in architecture. I hope more professionals join in the coming years to make its impact even more far-reaching.
Thank you, A&D Awards. You’ve been an amazing support for our practice. Without you, I think we would not be where we are today.
The standard of entries was very high… I learnt a lot from them. I think they are an insight into Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.
My advice is if you don’t enter you will not know how good or bad you are. So enter and share your projects on a great platform of design.
I’ve seen some really good projects and outside the box concepts, so I can’t wait to see more interesting work next year.
I think the projects are of really high caliber, and the awards are an endorsement of the quality of design. I think everyone should support them.
