Recognise your design talent

Since the growth of Asian economies in the recent decade, places in Asia have been rapidly evolving and developing on all fronts. Together with the dramatic change on climate, technology and transformation of economy and community on a global scale, we are seeing a new set of challenges faced by Asian societies. Design, now more than ever, is becoming crucial in combating these challenges. Through design thinking and people-centric approach, design solutions can better enhance and uplift the social and economic well-being of our cities.

Design have become a strong force to revitalise many industries. To show your good design to the world, recognition by an influential awards would be beyond doubt the best way to be.
