Booklet
A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Great designers have always found ingenious ways to resolve contradictions and conventions, merging the present with the future in ways that surprise, delight, and stand the test of time.

Today, the challenges facing designers go far beyond the traditional tension between form and function. How can we balance the needs of urbanisation and sustainability? The natural world and the built environment? Take advantage of digital connectivity while maintaining interpersonal bonds? Be locally relevant but globally applicable? And give equal weight to the needs of the community and the individual?

What are we looking for in Architecture Category?

Your architectural design proposal should portray spaces that positively impact the individual, society and our environment as a whole. Your project must be both beautiful and feasible from an architectural and engineering perspective.
