Design and architecture in Asia Pacific are progressing in response to the region’s needs. So are the INDE.Awards in 2018!
17 November, 2017
After a successful inaugural edition with over 400 entries from 14 countries across the Asia Pacific region (recap all the action from the INDE.Awards 2017 in our review), the INDE.Awards are growing in scope with the addition of awards for The Multi-Residential Building, The Shopping Space, The Learning Space, and The Wellness Space.
The new categories address sectors of design with significant and increasing relevance to the Asia Pacific region, enhancing the strength of the INDE.Awards as a barometer of progressive design around APAC.
The Multi-Residential Building category acknowledges the rapid urban growth happening in APAC cities and the need for dense residential developments that cater to human experience as well as market drivers.
This year, retail design has been given its own dedicated category with The Shopping Space award, which caters to the shifting ground being seen in the retail sector all around the region. The introduction of The Shopping Space category allows The Social Space category (which will continue from 2017) to focus purely on hospitality/F&B design, which has its own particular set of design currents.
The Learning Space category pays homage to the progressive work being done regionally in design for education. Approaches to education itself are varied across the region, but leading design work is emerging that is thoroughly worthy of celebration.
As populations age and lifestyles change around APAC, health and wellness are becoming more critical. The Wellness Space category acknowledges how the spaces in which we seek health and wellness services are changing for the benefit of human experience, and responding to the emergence of new healthcare technologies.
