History

For over 15 years, A&D Awards under Perspective Limited (managed by Asian Integrated Media Limited) has covered the architecture, interiors and design markets in Asia and beyond. It has hosted two annual flagship design awards events to recognize both professional and young emerging talents.

In 2020, the newly rebranded A&D Awards with a strong online readership and widespread support from leading industry figures both regionally and as far afield as Europe and the US, will continue to hone its premier edge by focusing on the new and the breakthrough; by engaging both established, well-known success stories as well as unearthing young and upcoming prodigious talent.

A&D Awards

The A&D Awards (previously the A&D Trophy Awards created in 2004 and the A&D China Awards created in 2018) celebrate excellence in architecture, interior design and product design across Asia-Pacific and beyond. For the past 15 years, with a strong network and widespread support from leading industry figures as far afield as Europe and the United States, the A&D Awards have grown from humble beginnings into a competition which is truly respected by the Asia and Greater China creative design community it serves, with a panel of expert local and international judges comparable with other awards shows globally.

40 Under 40 Awards

The Perspective 40 Under 40 Awards 2019 marked the 13th consecutive year of recognising 40 young design talents from the fields of art, architecture, interior design and product design.

The 40 Under 40 Awards recognise the generation of talented individuals who will and are leading the future of design. Some of the previous winners are already shaping the world in which we live. Some examples include: André Fu (AFSO), Barrie Ho (BARRIE HO Architecture), Ma Yansong (MAD Architects), Aric Chen (M+), Joyce Wang (Joyce Wang Studio), Bryant Lu (Ronald Lu & Partners) and Bjarke Ingels (BIG), to name just a few.

We continually review our products with the aim of determining how they can be improved to be more relevant to both our readers and our clients. Changes and improvements are regularly implemented, with many already achieving great results.

In short, we talk to our readers and our advertisers, engage with the industry design associations listening to their comments, suggestions and ideas, and ensure that everything we do at A&D Awards will inspire professionalism, thought leadership and commitment to lift the voice of the architecture and design community across Asia.
