Some of Asia’s most talented young architects and interior designers have been recognised and rewarded as winners in the 40 Under 40 Awards 2021. Twenty-nine of this year’s winners are from Hong Kong, while eight are from the mainland, two from Singapore and one from Thailand. Check out the jubilant scenes at the presentation ceremony, captured in our event highlights video and photo gallery, as the happy winners receive their certificates, as well as the full list of winners.
For 18 years, the A&D Awards have set the benchmark for excellence in architecture and interior design within Greater China and beyond. They are highly respected for recognising and celebrating the most innovative and efficient projects by local and overseas practices.
We have now revealed the 95 shortlisted projects for A&D Awards 2021 which are still in the running to win a coveted A&D Gold, Silver or Bronze Award in their respective categories. It was determined after a rigorous assessment by our international panel of 19 judges.
The planned Gala Presentation Evening on Monday, January 10, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel has been postponed due to new COVID restrictions implemented by the Hong Kong Government. The winners will be announced in a virtual presentation later in January. More details will be shared soon.
Cecilia Ramos understands that designers aim to “create spaces that facilitate life – spaces that can adapt and transform depending on a client’s needs”. It’s why the Senior Director, Architectural Market, at Lutron Electronics is so passionate about the company’s Home Control (Automation) Technology to curate the perfect light environment in a built space.
Shenzhen’s Qian Hai new district is home to some of the region’s brightest young innovators and entrepreneurs. It is also home to a building that sets new standards in creativity and sustainable design, thanks to a breakthrough “double-skin” façade engineered by BARRIE HO Architecture.
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.
